Marines in Battle #1-25 (Aug. 1954 - Sept. 1958).

Marines in Battle #19William Robert "Bob" Brown (August 22, 1915 – January 29, 1977) was an American comic book artist with an extensive career from the early 1940s through the 1970s. With writers Edmond Hamilton and Gardner Fox, Brown created the DC Comics hero Space Ranger, drawing the character's complete run from his debut in the try-out comic Showcase #15 (Aug. 1958) through Mystery in Space #103 (July 1965).

He did his first comic book work for Timely ('Young Hearts'), National Periodicals ('The Vigilante') and Ziff-Davis ('Famous Stars', 'Kid Cowboy') and worked for both Timely/Atlas and National/DC throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. He cooperated on both company's mystery, war and romance titles, including 'Mystery Tales', 'Justice Comics' and 'True Comics'.

Brown was the graphic creator of the 'Space Ranger' character that appeared in DC's 'Tales of the Unexpected' comic book from 1959. Brown illustrated every story until the comic's cancellation in 1965. He also drew DC's 'Superboy' and 'Tom Sparks Boy Inventor'. In the 1970s, Bob Brown illustrated such Marvel titles as 'Torpedo', 'Daredevil', 'Spider-Man', 'Lilith', 'Luke Cage Power Man' and 'Avengers'.Bob Brown

Brown also penciled the DC title Challengers of the Unknown (taking over from Jack Kirby) for over ten years, from 1959–1969; and he had notable runs on DC's Superboy and Marvel Comics' Daredevil, the latter during the mid-1970s.

Brown's work also appeared in DC's Action Comics, The Brave and the Bold, Detective Comics, Doom Patrol, House of Mystery, House of Secrets, My Greatest Adventure, Tales of the Unexpected, Tomahawk and World's Finest Comics; the Marvel Comics titles The Avengers, Warlock, and The Rawhide Kid; and the French comic series Big Boy. With writer Dennis O'Neil, Brown co-created the character Talia al Ghul in Detective Comics #411 (May 1971) as a recurring romantic interest for Batman. One of Brown's last published pieces, a fill-in story written by Bill Mantlo (and actually drawn a couple of years earlier), was published posthumously in Uncanny X-Men #106 (Aug. 1977).

Brown's career in comics began during the 1940s and spanned four decades, with steady work for both DC and Marvel until his untimely death in 1977 at age 62 from leukemia following a long illness. He had just signed on as the new artist on Wonder Woman with #231 but only completed a single issue which was released two weeks after his death. He was eulogized in August 1977 issues of Marvel titles, with special mention given to his fostering ". . . better communication between American and European cartoonists."
