Before drawing Mary Worth, Joe Giella worked at DC Comics on titles such as The Flash, Green Lantern, Batman, and many others. This year is the 75th anniversary of Batman which debuted in 1939.
To mark the occasion, golf pro Tom Ward sat down and spoke to Joe about his work on the legendary comic book character.
Hi. This is Karen Moy, writer of Mary Worth. Welcome to the Mary Worth site.
When I tell people that I write Mary Worth, sometimes I’m asked how I do it. The answer, to quote Edison is, “One per cent inspiration, and ninety-nine per cent perspiration.” The truth is it’s hard work. It’s gratifying and wonderful, but it’s also time-sensitive, deadline- oriented, and 50% dependent on the artist I’m working with. Thankfully, I’m working with a great artist, the legendary Joe Giella. It also helps that I love reading and telling a good story.
