Bill Black began his comics career in 1969 illustrating horror stories for CREEPY and EERIE at Warren Publications. Also that year he started his own publishing company, Paragon Publications, and created CAPTAIN PARAGON, SYNN, SCARLET SCORPION, TARA and many other characters that still exist in 2023.
Today these Paragon issues are hot collectibles. In 1982 Black launched AC Comics, one of the first 5 Indy comics publishers and the only one still around. During the next 4 decades as Editor and Publisher, AC released over 130 comic book titles. 2023 marks AC Comics 40th anniversary. AC Comics has published monthly for 40 years.
Bill Black is an artist and writer whose most notable creation, FEMFORCE (historically the first all-female super team) has just recently reached the 200th issue milestone. Black retired from AC in 2014 to pursue film making and released such videos as AMAZING COLOSSAL WOMAN, MONSTER GORILLA, NYOKA AND THE LOST AMULET OF VULTURA and THE SCARLET SCORPION. Starting with FEMFORCE No. 188, Black was pressed back into service at AC helming that title as writer, inker (with artist Eric Coile), colorist and letterer to date through FEMFORCE No. 201.
He is currently working on the films STORMY TEMPEST: THE ASTRAL AVENGER and REVENGE OF GARGANTA.
