Celebrity & Guest Appearances
A native Texan, Sam de la Rosa had his first comic book credit appear in DC Comics' Action Comics #534. He provided finished art over layouts by Keith Pollard for Green Lantern #160 and then became the regular finishing artist starting on World's Finest #285, with layouts by Silver-Age Great, Rich Buckler. That same year, Sam caught the attention of Marvel Comics when Bob Layton and Mark Gruenwald asked him to finish pages of (Bob's) layouts on Hercules Prince of Power Mini Series, Issue #4 in 1982. His work on Hercules led to years of regular jobs for Marvel providing inks and finished art on various Spider-Man titles, Venom Lethal Protector, Venom Separation Anxiety, Captain America, Black Panther, Squadron Supreme, Iron Man, What-If, Dr. Strange, Daredevil, The Thing, Spider Woman, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and others.
