As young man, he enjoyed career as successful escape artist, developing his own methods for lock breaking, and became regionally famous for death-defying escapes from local jails, straitjackets, and underwater steel barrels. Inspire by Sterankos escapology exploits, Jack Kirby created super Artist Mister Miracle for DC COMICS in 1971. By mid-60s, STERANKO began working as COMIC BOOK illustrator, first at Harvey COMICS then eventually for Marvel COMICS. He was than impressed WITH many OF COMIC ARTISTS OF time, thinking of them as machines cranking out work for their page rate. He said he wasnt there to earn living, He was there to make kind of statement. His work does exactly that. Blending elements of graphic design and current pop culture esthetics into his work, he created COMICS that were psychedelic and cinematic masterpieces are still influential and relevant even today. Like most who break current accepted molds, his unique style leads to confrontations with editors who want him to conform. STERANKO was never one to buckle and instead out of more than one job rather than compromise his ideals. JIM believes in protecting creative integrity of other ARTISTS as well as his own and most well known story about him involves Batmans creator Bob Kane. Originally credited as sole creator of Batman, Kane had small group OF ARTISTS who did much of work in creating mythos OF characters while Kane took all credit and half of their pay. One such artist was Bill Finger, who was close friend OF Sterankos. Despite knowing truth about Kane, STERANKO wrote OF him respectfully in his self-published STERANKO HISTORY OF COMICS. When later meeting Kane for first time at COMIC BOOK convention, STERANKO bit his tongue as he listened to Kane complain that he gave Finger too much credit in his BOOK. Boiling Point For STERANKO Came As Kane Was Leaving, Who Cuffed Jims Face And Spoke To Him In Condescending Manner While Saying Goodbye.
