Have 2 comic book creators ever worked together to create a character? If so, who did they create?


Entropy, what i mean is did 2 comic book creators ever sit down and "draw" out a character? (besides that you did not even mention who that character was)

    Many characters are usually created by a writer-artist duo.

    Stan Lee and Jack Kirby co-created the Fantastic Four, Thor, Hulk, X-Men, and many others. Meanwhile Lee and Steve Ditko co-created Spider-Man. 

    As for two artists creating a single character together, Bob Kane and Bill Finger may count. Kane's first Batman design had the character in red tights and a domino mask. Finger then suggested to Kane to draw Batman a cape and cowl with no red.

    Sometimes, the writers may try to draw a rough design of a character while the artists create a finished designed.

    It's very common for a writer and an artist to create characters together. Siegel and Schuster (Superman), Lee and Kirby (X-Men, Fantastic 4, various others), Simon and Kirby (Captain America), Lee and Ditko (Spider-Man), etc.

    For one created by two artists, Eastman and Laird (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

    Sure.  Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created a ton of Marvel's flagship characters together.  Lee was the writer, but Lee often left a lot of details to his artists.  So you could argue they co-created them.

    And of course there's the famous Bob Kane and Bill Finger dispute over Batman.  The truth seems to be that Finger came up with the most meaningful details and Kane simply refined them and then took credit for the whole thing.
