    Alex Saviuk started his professional career at DC Comics in 1977 after studying sequential art with WILL EISNER at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. Within a few short months, he became the regular artist on GREEN LANTERN and THE FLASH. He also drew SUPERMAN, HAWKMAN, AQUAMAN, The ATOM, and AIR WAVE, among others. In 1986, Alex moved over to MARVEL COMICS filling in on IRON MAN 211 and various covers before eventually becoming the penciler on DEFENDERS OF THE EARTH featuring The PHANTOM, FLASH GORDON, and MANDRAKE.

    Then, after successfully filling in on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN for 3 issues, he started a 7+ year run on WEB OF SPIDER-MAN followed by over 2 more years on SPIDER-MAN ADVENTURES. In 1997-98 Alex penciled the last 12 issues of THE X-FILES for TOPPS Comics (#30-41). In 2003, he joined the ranks of a Swedish and also, simultaneously an Australian publisher chronicling the adventures of Lee Falk’s THE PHANTOM. In 2004, he also assisted his mentor WILL EISNER( legendary creator of THE SPIRIT ) on THE SPIRIT MEETS THE ESCAPIST published by DARK HORSE which unfortunately was Will Eisner’s last completed work before his passing in January 2005. Alex also worked on the graphic novel FEAST of the SEVEN FISHES glowingly reviewed by STAN LEE; it was nominated for an EISNER AWARD in 2006, and that same year The Spider-Man newspaper strip also received a HARVEY nomination.
