Bio:
Dan Spiegle has had a long career in drawing comics based on movie and television characters, and has worked for companies like Dell, DC and Marvel. In his second year of high school, Spiegle sent a sample comic strip to King Features. It was politely turned down, but Spiegle vowed to become a cartoonist. Discharged from the navy in 1946, Spiegle enrolled at the Chouinard Art Institute of Los Angeles.

In 1949, he was introduced to movie actor Bill Boyd, who was looking for an artist to draw a strip based on his Hopalong Cassidy interpretation. Spiegle got the job and 'Hopalong Cassidy' started appearing the same year. Spiegle continued drawing the strip until its demise in 1955.

He tried his hand at a pirate strip, 'Penn and Chris', but without success. He then moved to Western Publishing Company drawing various comics for the Gold Key Comics line. This included the comic Space Family Robinson, Korak, Brothers of the Spear, and many of their mystery/occult titles. While mostly known for his realistic style he also proved capable of handling more cartoony material such as Scooby Doo. In 1966 at the height of the James Bond craze Spiegle provided realistic backgrounds and human characters while funny animal artist Paul Murry drew Mickey and Goofy for the short-lived Mickey Mouse Super Secret Agent.

Spiegle later moved to DC Comics and worked on many of their features such as Batman, Unknown Soldier, Blackhawk, Tomahawk, Jonah Hex and Teen Titans until the early 1990s. His most notable work was the Nemesis backup series in Brave and the Bold, and on Blackhawk with Mark Evanier.

He would co-create Crossfire with Mark Evanier at Eclipse Comics. Evanier and Spigle also did five issues of Hollywood Superstars for Marvel's Epic Comics imprint. Both series had as their milleu the entertainment industry and drew on Evanier's years working as writer for television and films.

More recently he provided the art for Indiana Jones: Thunder in the Orient and Indiana Jones and the Spear of Destiny published by Dark Horse Comics. In the mid-1990s he took over doing art for the short-lived revival of the comic strip Terry and the Pirates after Tim and Greg Hildebrandt left. He is currently providing comic-style stories for Boys' Life magazine.
