Martin Powell has written hundreds of stories, both for comics and prose, in numerous genres for Disney, Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Capstone Books, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., among others. Nominated for the prestigious Eisner Award for his fiction featuring Sherlock Holmes, he has written many of the most popular characters in the industry, including Superman, Batman, Popeye the Sailor, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Tarzan of the Apes.
His Tall Tale of Paul Bunyan won the national Moonbeam Golden Award for Best Children's Graphic Novel of 2010. Powell is the co-creator of The Halloween Legion, a nominee for the Stan Lee Excelsior Award, and he’s also been an educational writer for Gander Publishing, dedicated to improving literacy reading skills for students of all ages.
Currently, as the author of nearly a dozen different Edgar Rice Burroughs online comics series, and the critically acclaimed Jungle Tales of Tarzan graphic novel, it is probable that Powell has written more Burroughs characters than any other writer. In 2017 he received the coveted Golden Lion Award from the Burroughs Bibliophiles for his on-going contributions to the legacy of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
