Jim Krueger graduated Marquette University with a degree in Journalism. He won two Addy Awards during his first year as a copywriter. A year later he became a creative director at Marvel Comics and has since become a freelance comic book writer/property creator.
His original works include the Foot Soldiers, Alphabet Supes, The Clock Maker and the soon-to-be-released, The Last Straw Man . His first short film, They Might Be Dragons , which he wrote, directed, and produced won "Best In Class" at NYU and a "Best Short Film" award from The New York Independent Film Festival.
Other comic book writing includes the award-winning Earth X trilogy for Marvel Comics, as well as Avengers, X-Men, Star Wars, Matrix and Batman , and he has since introduced two new comic book formats.
On the drawing board are such projects as Micronauts, Galactic for Dark Horse Entertainment, The Lion (a C.S. Lewis-like fantasy), a new, short film called "Looking Out For No. One (or is that No One?)" and the Justice League for DC Comics.
Jim is also president and publisher of his own comic book entertainment company, 26 Soldiers, and was named as one of the top ten writers in comics and an innovator in the field by Wizard Magazine.
