Bob Schreck Wikipedia
Bob Schreck (born February 2, 1955) is an American comic book writer and editor. A co-founder of Oni Press, Schreck worked for long stretches at both Dark Horse Comics and DC Comics. He is currently editor-in-chief of Legendary Comics.
One of Shreck's earliest jobs in comics was working with Creation Entertainment in the early 1980s on their Creation conventions. For much of the 1980s he served as administrative director at Comico Comics.
For much of the 1990s Schreck was an editor at Dark Horse Comics, where he was in charge of (among other titles) Dark Horse Presents.
He left Dark Horse in 1997 and shortly thereafter co-founded Oni Press with Joe Nozemack. Oni's goal was publishing comics and graphic novels the founders would want to read. Unsatisfied with the material that was dominating the industry, they believed firmly that sequential art could be used to tell virtually any story.
Leaving Oni in 1999, Schreck went to work as an editor at DC Comics, where he worked on the Batman titles and the All Star imprint. He was laid off in January 2009.
After leaving DC, Schreck joined IDW Publishing as a senior editor, where he also wrote the comic book series Jurassic Park: Redemption.
In 2011, he was named editor-in-chief of Legendary Comics, the new graphic novel venture from Legendary Pictures.
Shreck was married for a short period to Diana Schutz, who he met in the early 1980s while he was at Creation Entertainment. He is openly bisexual.1990: Won Inkpot Award
