Alvin Schwartz was a key writer on the Superman character, starting in the mid 1940s. He wrote the newspaper strip -- an underappreciated for making the character and its attendant ideas recognizeable worldwide -- and scripted many of the first features in his comics magazines. The press release from the awards program notes that Schwartz wrote the first tale of "Bizarro," a character who went on to star in some of the best mainstream comic books ever written and a concept that has found pop culture purchase in the decades since. The versatile Schwartz also worked on such titles as Buzzy, Fairy Tale Parade, Detective Comics, All Funny Comics, World's Finest and Superboy. He has since gone on to a prolific career as a writer of books; he also wrote movie scripts.

Good for him. I believe Alan Moore recently said that Alvin Schwartz was one of the few comic writers he'd put on the same level as William Blake. That's high praise indeed!

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.
