Askegren, Pierce

Tagged: Comics | Author

(1955-2006) US author of some Comics scripts, though he concentrated mostly on Ties, beginning with "The Broken Land" for The Ultimate Silver Surfer (anth 1995) edited by Stan Lee. Further ties for Marvel Comics, featuring Spider-Man and other figures of his era, include Spider-Man and Iron Man: Doom's Day 1: Rampage (1996) uncredited, with Danny {FINGEROTH}, Spider-Man and Iron Man: Doom's Day 2: Sabotage (1997) with Danny {FINGEROTH} and Spider-Man and Fantastic Four: Doom's Day 3: Wreckage (1997) with Eric {FEIN}; other ties include Marc Miller's Traveller: Gateway to the Stars (1998), based on the role-playing game (see Game-Worlds), and Buffy the Vampire Slayer: After Image (2006), based on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) television series. In his own right, he began the Inconstant Moon trilogy – comprising Human Resource (2005), Fall Girl (2005) and Exit Strategy (2006) – set in an underground Moon colony, where dissension is rife. The title refers not to Larry Niven's famous story but, presumably, to William Shakespeare. [JC]
