Guest Bio

Bob Layton is one of the comics industry’s true visionaries, creator, writer, artist, designer, and entrepreneur.  Layton reinvented the Iron Man comic in the late 70s, taking it from near-cancellation to one of Marvel’s all-time bestselling series which spawned the hit movies. His classic Iron Man story “Demon in a Bottle” was recently voted “one of the top 20 comic stories of all time”. Bob also launched the first mini-series in comics’ history at Marvel with “Hercules: Prince of Power“ and co-created the record-breaking comic “X-Factor”, as well as such characters as War Machine, The new Ant-Man and DC’s Huntress.  After Marvel, Layton was co-architect of the original Valiant Universe and served as its Editor-In-Chief. Bob currently works in Hollywood developing new properties for motion pictures and television, working with such stars as Academy Award Nominee Edward James Olmos.
