Who is Hank Chapman?

Henry P. "Hank" Chapman is an American comic book writer for Marvel Comics' two predecessors, Timely Comics and Atlas Comics, and later for DC Comics, where he specialized in war fiction. Though much of his Timely/Atlas work went unsigned, comics historians estimate that Chapman, a staff writer, penned several hundred or more stories. Noted comics historian and writer-editor Tony Isabella has written, "Chapman wrote hundreds of fine stories for Timely/Atlas and DC Comics from the 1940s through the early 1960s."

Among Chapman's works is an early self-reflexive story, in 1951, in which he and editor Stan Lee appear; and the creation, with artist Jack Abel, of the DC Comics character Sgt. Mule, a pack animal that helped its Allied keepers fight the Nazis in a variety of World War II stories.
