Biography

Early life and career

George Tuska was born in Hartford, Connecticut, the youngest of three children of Russian immigrants Harry and Anna Onisko Tuska, who had met in New York City George's siblings Peter, the eldest, and Mary, the middle child, were born in New York City Years later, Mary died while giving birth to her second child, who was stillborn Harry, a foreman at a Hartford auto-tire company, died when George was 14 Anna then opened a restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey, where she had relatives, and later remarried At 17, Tuska moved to New York City, rooming with his cousin Annie, and a year later began attending the National Academy of Design His artistic influences included illustrators Harold von Schmidt, Dean Cornwell, and Thomas Lovell, and comic strip artists Lou Fine, Hal Foster, and Alex Raymond At some early point, he took his first job in art, designing women's costume jewelry

Tuska then began working for comic book packager Eisner & Iger, one of a handful of companies at the time that supplied comics on demand for publishers entering the new medium His first known published comic-book work appeared in Fox Comics' Mystery Men Comics #1 and Wonderworld Comics #4, both cover-dated August 1939 Tuska in the mid-2000s recalled:

I went to art school at the same I was doing costume jewelry design I put in an application with a professional agency in New York City I told them I could do cartooning, drawing A week later, I got a call from Eisner-Iger, asking me to submit some samples said, 'That's pretty good, but we don't do that stuff' He showed me a comic book and said, 'This is what we want' I went home and made a page — a whole story in one page When I brought it back, he bought it for $5 He said, 'We'd like to have you work for us' That's how I got started I gave up school I made $10 per week

At Eisner & Iger, Tuska said in 2001, "I worked alongside Bob Powell, Lou Fine, and Mike Sekowsky" His studio colleagues later grew to include artists Charles Sultan, John Celardo, and Nick Cardy, and writer Toni Blum Writer-artist and company co-founder Will Eisner recalled of the period, "It was a friendly shop, and I guess I was the same age as the youngest guys there We all got along The only ones who ever got into a hassle were George Tuska and Bob Powell Powell was kind of a wiseguy and made remarks about other people in the shop One day, George had enough of it, got up, and punched out Bob Powell" The otherwise mild-mannered Tuska, thinking comic books "would last two or three years — a fad", later left to seek non-comics work After two weeks, however, he came across colleagues Sultan and Dave Glaser, on their way to meet with comics packager Harry "A" Chesler Tuska, invited along, joined Chesler's studio, working there in 1939 and 1940, earning $22 a week, increased to $42 a week within six months Alongside colleagues that included Sultan, Ruben Moreira, Mac Raboy, and Ralph Astarita, to Tuska helped to supply content for such Fawcett Comics publications as Captain Marvel Adventures Later, when Eisner-Iger client Fiction House formed its own bullpen to produce work on staff, Tuska left Chesler to join Cardy, Jim Mooney, Graham Ingels and other artists there

Tuska produced a prodigious amount of work that included, for Fiction House, the South Sea adventure feature "Shark Brodie" under the pen name George Aksut and the investigative feature "Hooks Devlin", both for Fight Comics; the rich-vigilante feature "Glory Forbes" in Ranger Comics; and "Jane Martin" in Wings Comics Before and during his six years at Fiction House, Tuska freelanced such features as the North Atlantic seafaring adventure "Spike Marlin" as Carl Larson in Harvey Comics' Speed Comics; "Wing Turner" as Floyd Kelly for Fox Comics' Mystery Men Comics; "Archie O'Toole" as Bud Thomas in Quality Comics' Smash Comics and "Cosmic Carson" as Michael Griffith in Fox's Science Comics

At some point, Tuska again worked for Will Eisner, now split from Jerry Iger, with a group of artists that included Alex Kotzky and Tex Blaisdell "While with Eisner, I penciled some Spirit and Uncle Sam stories" Tuska's first Uncle Sam work was the cover and virtually every story in Uncle Sam Quarterly #3, cover-dated Summer 1942 Independently, he was assigned by Fawcett art director Al Allard to draw "a few more Captain Marvel stories Allard had asked me to draw as close as possible to the way Captain Marvel had first appeared in Whiz Comics After those freelance jobs, I never worked for Fawcett again" Tuska's earliest Captain Marvel work appeared in Captain Marvel Adventures #2-4 Summer 1941, Fall 1941, and the oddly dated Oct 31, 1941

Drafted into the US Army circa 1942, Tuska was stationed at the 100th Division at Fort Jackson in Columbia, South Carolina, where he drew military plans and was honorably discharged after a year for reasons the artist did not specify Returning home, he took up again with Fiction House, drawing a host of stories featuring Reef Ryan, Rip Carson, Lady Satan, the Western hero Golden Arrow, and Camilla, Queen of the Jungle

Crime Does Not Pay

Following the huge popularity of superheroes during the World War II years, those characters' appeal began to dwindle in the post-war era Comic-book publishers, casting about for new subjects and genres, found a hit in crime fiction, the most prominent comic of which was Lev Gleason Publications' Crime Does Not Pay Tuska would soon make a name for himself as one of the genre's top comics artists After starting with short backup features and spot illustrations for text stories, Tuska was drawing the lead stories and more by Crime Does Not Pay #50 March 1947

1950s

Tuska's first work for the future Marvel Comics came in 1949, when Marvel's predecessor company, Timely Comics, was transitioning to its 1950s iteration, Atlas Comics His first confirmed credit is the seven-page story "Justice Has a Heart" in Casey - Crime Photographer # 1 Aug 1949 He quickly went on to draw in an abundance of genres for Atlas, including crime fiction in titles including Crime Can't Win, Crime Exposed, Private Eye, Justice, Amazing Detective Cases, and All True Crime Cases Comics; military fiction Men in Action, War Combat, Man Comics, Battlefield, and Battle; horror Adventures into Weird Worlds, Adventures into Terror, Mystic, Menace, and Strange Tales; and, particularly, Westerns Black Rider, Gunsmoke Western, Kid Colt, Outlaw, Red Warrior, Texas Kid, Two-Gun Kid, Western Outlaws & Sheriffs, Wild Western, and many others through 1957, while also occasionally contributing to Lev Gleason and St John Publications

Simultaneously at first, from 1954 to 1959, Tuska took over as writer-artist for the failing adventure comic strip Scorchy Smith, supplying "eye-catching drawings and interesting plots, but it was too late" The strip would end in 1961 Tuska by then had moved on to the long-running science-fiction comic strip Buck Rogers, on which he was the final artist, drawing both the daily and Sunday strip from April 1959 to 1965, and the daily only from then through 1967, when both the daily and the Sunday were canceled

The Silver Age

Tuska's cover of Iron Man #18 Oct 1969 displays a panoply of character faces, as well as both old and new Iron Man armors

Near the cancellation of the daily Buck Rogers strip, Tuska again found a freelance home at what was by now Marvel Comics, then in the full breadth of what historians and fans call the Silver Age of Comic Books "I called Stan and he said, 'Come on up', Tuska recalled in the mid-2000s His first Marvel story, a "Tales of the Watcher" feature in Tales of Suspense #58 Nov 1964, included a special introduction by Lee, hailing the return of the Golden Age great

Tuska became a Marvel mainstay, penciling and occasionally inking other artists on series as diverse as Ghost Rider, Sub-Mariner, and The X-Men His signature series became Iron Man, on which he enjoyed a nearly 10-year, sometimes briefly interrupted, run from issue #5 Sept 1968 to #106 Jan 1978 He and writer Archie Goodwin created the Controller as an antagonist in Iron Man #12 April 1969

Comics historian Les Daniels noted that when Goodwin, Tuska and inker Billy Graham launched Luke Cage, Hero for Hire in 1972, "it was the first Marvel comic to take its title from a black character" Shanna the She-Devil was created by Carole Seuling, Steve Gerber, and Tuska in the eponymous first issue of that character's own series He was one of the artists on the licensed movie tie-in series Planet of the Apes Due to Marvel not having the likeness rights for Charlton Heston, the star of the film, one of the lawyers at 20th Century Fox insisted on changes to Tuska's art Editor Roy Thomas believed that Tuska "just made a handsome looking guy, but it didn't look like Hestonyou can't argue If somebody says it looks like Charlton Heston and they're worried he's gonna sue, you can't say 'no' because they just weren't going to give the approval"

The AV Club insert of The Onion wrote, shortly before Tuska's death in 2009, that,

Tuska was perfectly competent, and his art for titles like Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk is decent, though unspectacular But his drawing was so quickly assayed, and so essentially flavorless, that he became the King of the Fill-In Issue, hopping in to provide bland, forgettable work whenever someone else blew a deadline He thus played an inadvertent part in setting up ' creed of speed over quality, and helped establish the Marvel house style, which nurtured some young artists, but acted as an artistic straitjacket for others

That assessment of Tuska's Marvel work is not widely shared John Romita Sr, Marvel's de facto and later official art director during this period, found Tuska "so versatile He could do everything When Stan knew that a guy could do anything, he used him in every possible, conceivable way George was a helluva artist and very versatile and very fast He was in demand" Comics writer and Tuska collaborator Tony Isabella wrote, "I would love to see a Best of George Tuska collection which included his crime, mystery, romance, war, and western stories He brought as much excitement and talent to those genres as he did to superhero comics" Comics journalist and historian Tom Spurgeon wrote that,

his layouts were certainly more imaginative than the standard at the time, and the way in which characters like Luke Cage held a lot of their strength in their shoulders and punched from their legs up through their torsos betrayed his knowledge of strength and fitness His signature flourish may have been characters in arrested motion, coiled in preparation for violence like so many pulp heroes of an earlier generation, legs splayed in the form of a near-base ready for what might come next Tuska cemented his reputation as one of the more iconic superhero artists of — two full generations after entering comics

Later career and death

Later, for DC Comics, Tuska drew characters including Superman, Superboy, and Challengers of the Unknown He had a five-year run drawing The World's Greatest Superheroes comic strip from 1978–1982, inked by Vince Colletta By this time, his health had become a handicap; Jim Shooter, who scripted an issue of Daredevil penciled by Tuska in 1977, recalled that, "George Tuska was at the end of his brilliant career, he was mostly deaf, communication was difficult, and though he showed occasional flashes of the chops that made him a big name artist in his day, I don't think his work on Daredevil was anywhere near his best" Tuska drew DC's Masters of the Universe limited series in 1982

Retired from active comics work as of the 2000s, Tuska lived in Manchester Township, New Jersey with his wife Dorothy "Dot", where he did commissioned art The couple had three children, Barbara, Kathy and Robert Tuska died in 2009 "near the stroke of midnight between October 15 and October 16," officially on the latter date His last published comic-book art was one of four variant covers for Dynamite Entertainment's Masquerade #2 March 2009

Awards

Tuska was a 1997 recipient of the industry's Inkpot Award
