Robert Loren Fleming (born November 5, 1956)[1] is an American comic book writer.

Career[edit]

Fleming worked for DC Comics initially as a proofreader and later writer. His first published comics story was "String-Out" in House of Mystery #316 (May 1983).[2] He and artist Trevor Von Eeden created Thriller in 1983.[3] Fleming left the series as of its seventh issue due to difficulties with DC Comics' management.[4]

He has frequently worked with Keith Giffen. They produced two Ambush Bug limited series in 1985 and 1986[2] and an Aquaman one-shot special and a limited series in 1989.[5] In 1991, Fleming and Giffen collaborated on a Ragman limited series.[6] The following year, the Fleming/Giffen team produced the Eclipso: The Darkness Within miniseries with artist Bart Sears.[7] The duo reunited for 2008's Ambush Bug: Year None.[2]
