From Sgt. Rock to Metal Men: Robert Kanigher Was One of Comics’ Great Creative Minds

Showcase #4, the first appearance of Barry Allen

June 18 marks the birthday of Robert Kanigher, the man who wrote the book on how to make money writing comics. And I mean that literally.

Among his many accomplishments in a career that spanned four decades was the publication of How To Make Money Writing in 1943. At the time, Kanigher was already ten years into writing professionally, and in addition to sections on writing for radio shows, films and the stage, the book featured tips for aspiring creators who were looking to break into this brand-new medium called comics. Looking back, that book's a footnote, but I have to imagine that there were some good tips in there, considering that Kanigher would go on to co-create some of DC's greatest characters, including Poison Ivy, Sgt. Rock, and, in 1958, Barry Allen, the character who would launch the Silver Age of Comics as the Flash.

The Flash Season 2 Wendy Jay Garrick
The CW / DC Comics

The Flash finished out its first season as one of the stronger debuts in recent memory, setting a high bar for whatever pointed Flash crises we can expect in Season 2. The speedy CW drama has quite a future ahead, one that may include a new love interest for Barry Allen, as well as a certain “classical,” “square-jawed hero.” Okay, not THAT one.
