"Doug Moench is fast approaching his third decade of writing. His credits include novels, short stories, newspaper feature articles, book/movie/record reviews, magazine copy, dramatic radio and LP records, comic books, syndicated newspaper strips, film screenplays, and teleplays.

"In comics, Moench has written for Warren, Skywald, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Byron Preiss Visual Publications, various underground publishers, Heavy Metal Publications, Eclipse, Kitchen Sink, Dark Horse, Malibu, and others. Although precise records have never been kept, it is very possible that Moench has written more comic book pages than anyone else in history. He is currently writing Batman, one of the oldest ongoing comic book titles in the business.

"Moench and his works have been honored many times -- with the Eagle, World Fantasy, Diamond Gemstone, Inkpot, Eisner, and other awards -- and he was nominated for a Chicago Newspaper Guild Award in 1972. Time magazine listed The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse, for which Moench was story editor and head writer, as one of the Ten Best TV Shows of 1987, while the Wall Street Journal named it the best."
