Bob McLeod (1951 – ) has worked on virtually every major superhero for both Marvel and DC Comics. Hired on at Marvel in 1973 upon the recommendation of Neal Adams, McLeod went on to ink Crazy Magazine, The Incredible Hulk, Conan The Barbarian as well as penciling Star Wars and Spider-Man.

At DC, McLeod inked The Legion of Super Heroes, Detective Comics, Wonder Woman and The New Teen Titans and pencilled Superman in Action Comics. In the early 1990’s, he went on to help launch the then-new Superman series Man of Steel with Louise Simonson and Jon Bogdanove.

His other works include Captain America, The Sub-Mariner, GI Joe, and Aquaman, among others, but he is probably best known for co-creating along with writer Chris Claremont Marvel’s mutant super hero team and X-Men spin-off, The New Mutants.

Most recently, McLeod has illustrated The Phantom for the Swedish publisher Egmont. In 2008, he released a hardcover book through HarperCollins called SuperHero ABC. Featuring 32 original new superheroes to teach kids the alphabet, it was selected as one of the School Library Journal’s Best Books of the Year.
