  • Note: D. J. Arneson was a writer and editor for Dell Comics from 1962 to 1973. He wrote many of the supernatural comics, including Dracula, Werewolf, and Frankenstein, along with some of the superhero comics. He wrote Dark Shadows for Gold Key. He is particularly well-known for creating the character of "Lobo", a western comic featuring a black gunslinger hero. The first comic book headlined by a black character (1965), ''Lobo'' was well ahead of its time, and was cancelled after two issues. After his time at Dell, Arneson turned to writing books, especially juvenile books, publishing more than 100 titles. Many of these books featured ghosts, monsters, haunted houses, aliens, and the supernatural.
