Bob Rozakis is a veteran of the comic book industry, having spent twenty-five years on staff at DC Comics.
As a writer, Bob is perhaps best known as the co-creator of 'Mazing Man, but his credits include more than four hundred stories featuring Superman, Batman and virtually every other DC character. He is the author of the novel The Junkyards of Memory, has written storybooks for educational publishing projects and co-authored The Complete Idiot's Guide to Office Politics with his wife, Dr. Laurie Rozakis. His most recent work was The Secret History of AA Comics, an alternate history of the comic book industry that was serialized in Alter Ego and Back Issue magazines. His Anything Goes blog can be found at www. bobrozakis.blogspot.com.
Bob is still remembered as DC's Answer Man. Using his vast knowledge of the company's history and characters, he responded to all sorts of readers' questions in a column that appeared in DC's books for a number of years. Adapting to the developing technology, Bob utilized his credentials as a master of comic book history by hosting a weekly trivia chatroom on America Online for more than six years.
During his seventeen years as head of DC's Production Department, Bob guided his staff (and, ultimately, the entire industry) into previously unexplored areas of computerized color separations and typesetting, electronic page preparation, and computer-to-plate printing. These efforts earned DC Comics over one hundred awards for printing excellence and resulted in Bob twice being profiled and cover - featured in PUBLISHING & PRODUCTION EXECUTIVE.
In the "real world," Bob is the comptroller for Combined Resources Interiors, a drywall construction company. He annually teaches a creative writing course for the Johns Hopkins University / Center for Talented Youth summer program for gifted students. He plays volleyball, works out at the gym four times a week, donates blood and/or platelets as often as they'll let him, and even sleeps occasionally.
