Spiderman, by Klaus Janson

Klaus Janson was born in Coburg, Germany. He emigrated to the US in 1957 and settled in Connecticut, discovering comics very shortly thereafter. Janson made a professional debut for Marvel in 1973, inking the artwork of Rich Buckler for the series called 'The Black Panther', published in Jungle Action. During years he continued inking the diverse Marvel titles, like 'the Defenders', 'Deathlock', 'Battlestar Galactita' and 'Howard Duck'. But Janson main series was 'Daredevil'. In this period he inked for Gene Colan, Gil Kane, Carmine Infantino and Frank Miller. Working with Miller, Janson changed his inking style.

Later Janson became a comic artist too, focusing on drawing rather than just inking alone. With Miller, Janson worked on the influential mini series 'The Dark Knight Returns'. After Janson ended his work on 'Daredevil', he had developed a constant work as a sketcher, were he devolped a Gothic like style. He also did a lot of work on 'The Punisher', 'Spawn' and an adventure of Batman in five episodes, scripted by Grant Morrison.
