Alex Saviuk started his professional career at DC Comics in 1977 after studying sequential art with WILL EISNER at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. Within a few short months, he became the regular artist on GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW( #100-119 ) and THE FLASH (#273-278 ). He also drew SUPERMAN, HAWKMAN, AQUAMAN, The ATOM, and AIR WAVE, among others.
In 1986, Alex moved on to MARVEL COMICS starting with penciling IRON MAN #211 and various covers before eventually becoming the penciler on DEFENDERS OF THE EARTH featuring The PHANTOM, FLASH GORDON, and MANDRAKE. Then, after successfully filling in on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN for 3 issues (#292, 296, 297), he started a 7+ year run on WEB OF SPIDER-MAN (#35-116 ) followed by over 2 more years on SPIDER-MAN ADVENTURES.
In 1997-98, Alex penciled the last 12 issues of THE X-FILES for TOPPS Comics (#30-41). In 2003, he joined the ranks of a Swedish publisher, and also simultaneously an Australian publisher, chronicling the adventures of Lee Falk's THE PHANTOM. In 2004, he also assisted his mentor WILL EISNER (legendary creator of THE SPIRIT) on THE SPIRIT MEETS THE ESCAPIST published by DARK HORSE, which unfortunately was Will Eisner’s last completed work before his passing in January 2005.
Alex also worked on the graphic novel FEAST Of THE SEVEN FISHES nominated for an EISNER AWARD in 2006, and that same year The Spider-Man newspaper strip also received a HARVEY AWARD nomination. In 2012, Alex worked with STAN LEE on a mainstream superhero book called STAN LEE and THE MIGHTY SEVEN, published by ARCHIE COMICS.
Besides comics, Alex also does storyboards and conceptual art for advertising agencies and the occasional feature film (NEVER BACK DOWN, THE REAPING, HOOT, and LONELY HEARTS).
Currently, (and since 1997) besides THE PHANTOM, Alex pencils the SPIDER-MAN Sunday newspaper and inks the Dailies both written by STAN LEE !
