Since 2006, with the publication of The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation, and their subsequent graphic books and novels, including Anne Frank, The Anne Frank House Graphic Biography, and Vlad the Impaler, a graphic novel based on the hideous history of the man who gave his name to Dracula, artist Ernie Colón along with his writing partner, Sid Jacobson, have sold more than a million copies of their work. With the upcoming publication of The Sacred Band of Thebes in the fall of 2014, and Three-Fifths of a Man in early 2015, that number will continue to grow.
In addition to his work with Jacobson, Colón also served as an editor at DC Publications, overseeing such titles as The Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Blackhawk and The Flash, and creating the lead character and comic book series Amethyst, Princess of the Gem World. He also produced the artwork for a series of graphic versions of such classic books as Frankenstein, Treasure Island, Don Quixote and Call of the Wild for Puffin Books. Most recently Colón illustrated The Great American Documents: Volume 1 by Ruth Ashby, which was published in May 2014 by Hill & Wang.
Colón first met Jacobson when he went to work at Harvey Comics as a letterer. Together they have been responsible for countless comics and publications.
