Today in Comics History, January 30: Happy birthday, Denys Cowan!

Born on this day: comics artist, television producer, and one of the founders of Milestone Media: Denys Cowan (The Question, Hardware, Deathlok, Batman, Shaft, Thriller, Nightcat, Prince, Steel, Power Man and Iron Fist, Green Arrow and many more)!

Here's a quick interview with, and some cool shots of the studio of, Denys!

But by far the coolest look at Denys Cowan is the finest celebrity endorsement advertisement connected to comic books (that's right; get outta here, Levi's 501 guy!): an official Dewar's Scotch Whiskey Profile!

Happy birthday, then, to Denys Cowan, The Coolest Dude in Comics™!
