Self-taught inker Doug Hazlewood won the inking category of the Official Marvel Try-Out Contest in 1986. He did work for Americomics, Blackthorne, Eclipse (Liberty Project) & First (Sable the Hunter) before landing ANIMAL MAN at DC Comics. After a short run on Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. he began inking THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN. He went from there to SUPERBOY and then THE FLASH. He inked John Byrne's DOOM PATROL and then had a nice run on BIRDS OF PREY, SECRET SIX & TEEN TITANS with penciler Nicola Scott.
