|Portrait of Gardner Fox by Gil Kane|
This year marks the 100th birthday of Gardner Fox, one of the most influential comic writers of the 20th Century. He was born in Brooklyn, New York on May 20, 1911.
During the Silver Age, Fox’s script for “Flash of Two Worlds!”, from The Flash #123 (Sept. 1961), introduced the concept that the Golden Age heroes existed on a parallel Earth named Earth-Two. This introduces the concept of the Multiverse, allowing old and new heroes to co-exist and crossover. Where would modern comics be today with out the concept of parallel worlds???
Gardner Fox passed away December 24, 1986 here on Earth-One, but we have credible intelligence that he is celebrating his 100th on Earth-2 with an amazing birthday bash.
