This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was written and submitted by Nick Caputo, January 2004.


Paul Reinman was born in Germany in 1910. His earliest known comic book work was for DC comics in the 1940s on Green Lantern and Wildcat, and he drew many covers as well. He also worked for MLJ (later known as Archie Comics) on the Black Hood and the Hangman and the Wizard.

In 1949-1950 he drew the syndicated Tarzan strip. In the 1950s he was prolific at Atlas (later Marvel) comics, working in many genres including crime, western, humor, romance, horror and war. Reinman had a good design sense and some of his best work was on horror and war stories, where he was able to evoke mood by using heavy black inks.

In the 1960s Reinman was called on by editor Stan Lee to ink over many Jack Kirby stories when superheroes became popular again. Reinman inked the Hulk, Avengers and X-Men, while continuing to draw short fantasy and war stories.

The popularity of Marvel Comics in the 1960s led many other comics companies to emulate their style. Archie Comics revived a number of their 1940s characters under the imprint "Mighty Comics" and Paul Reinman (who had drawn some of them in the 1940s) became the main artist, penciling Fly-Man, Mighty Crusaders, the Shield, Steel Sterling, the Web and a super-hero version of the Shadow. He also drew a number of Thunder Agents stories for Tower comics, and appeared at other companies such as ACG.

In the 1970s Reinman worked as a colorist for Marvel Comics and continued to draw mystery stories, working for companies such as Gold Key as well.
