Mike Zeck’s comics series and covers have influenced generations of artists, and one would have to argue which of his series has been the most influential, or most deeply embossed in our pop culture.


Zeck’s groundbreaking six part story Kraven’s Last Hunt, with J.M. Dematteis and Bob McLeod is the definitive Kraven the Hunter story and took the Spider-Man character to a whole new level, and has been touted by readers as the “Greatest Spider-Man story of all time,” in recent polls.

His work with writer Steven Grant on the Punisher Limited Series–collected as Circle of Blood—set the standard for the look and feel of the character and propelled the Punisher to flagship character status at Marvel. Along with air-brush artist Phil Zimelman, Mike has created some of the most recognizable painted images of the Punisher.

The 12-issue Series Secret Wars, was a monumental success, and Zeck’s design for Spider-Man’s black costume is still recognizable and indelible to this day. Spider-Man wore the costume temporarily, and it still lives on in the form of the super-villain, Venom.

Zeck’s work has also graced the pages and covers of Captain America, Master of Kung Fu, Aquaman, Batman, Legends of the DC Universe, Green Lantern, G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe: Special Missions, Lobo, Deathstroke The Terminator, The Eliminator, Damned and many other titles.
