Jack Binder was born in Austria-Hungary in 1902, and moved to the United States in 1910. He attended fine art courses at the Chicago Art Institute. Binder joined the Harry "A" Chesler comic shop in 1937 as the group's art director. In 1940 he left the Chesler studio and formed his own shop. He produced comic material for companies like Fawcett, Pines, Street and Smith, New Friday, and Marvel. After three years Binder closed his shop and went to work for the studio of C.C. Beck. In 1946 he resigned the studio to pursue his personal art career.
Jack has drawn 'Scott Rand' and 'Press Guardian' for MLJ and 'Destroyer' and 'Flexo' for Marvel, and while he worked for Beck's he drew 'Mr. Scarlett' and also 'Mary Marvel' for Fawcett. Jack Binder's brother, Otto Binder wrote many of the 'Mary Marvel' scripts. Jack retired from the comic book industry in 1953 and returned to commercial art. Jack Binder died in 1988.
