Together with author James Vance, Dan Burr is a winner of the comic industry’s Eisner and Harvey awards for the graphic novel Kings In Disguise. Dan has also produced a number of historical comics for the DC/Paradox Big Book series, and he has worked extensively for Golden Books and other publishers doing illustrations for children’s educational materials. “The Disappearance of Ambrose Bierce” is an homage by Dan and Mort Castle to the style of Mad magazine’s great Will Elder.
