BIOGRAPHY:

Meet Joe Quesada, "the luckiest son of a b**** in the history of comic books." While working at the toy store FAO Schwarz, Quesada, having recently graduated from art school, was doodling on a napkin. A stock-boy came in, saw his scribbles, and suggested he write for comics. Quesada brushed off the idea with, "Ah, silly stock-boy, comics are for kids." However, the stock-boy insisted, and the next day he brought Frank Miller's first issue of "Dark Knight" for Quesada.
