Steve Lieber Sure is Creating Some Content

If you’ve been to a convention in the Pacific Northwest some time in the past few decades, there's a fair chance you’ve met Comics’ supportive accidental dad, Steve Lieber.

From beginnings that, according to him, start with no skill at all, to creating the pages of titles like Whiteout, Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen, Superior Foes of Spider-Man and DC Comics’ current run of Justice Society of America, as well as providing portfolio critique to young artists free of charge, there’s no denying that Lieber is a much-needed force for good in the comic sphere of today.

Popverse was able to catch up with Lieber at Fan Expo Portland over President’s Day weekend to dig into the roots, humor, and drive behind such a plentiful and generous career.
