Career[edit]

Personal life[edit]

Will Pfeifer was born in 1967 in the town of Niles, Ohio. He attended Kent State University and graduated in 1989. He has resided in Rockford, Illinois since 1990, with his wife, Amy.

Pfeifer, along with his comic writing duties, is the former assistant features editor at the Rockford Register Star. He also wrote a weekly DVD column for the Sunday paper during his time there.[1]

Comics[edit]

Pfeifer got his break working with artist Jill Thompson on Vertigo's Finals miniseries.[2]

Pfeifer wrote Catwoman for DC Comics until its cancellation, and temporarily took over for John Rogers on Blue Beetle. He also wrote the Amazons Attack! miniseries, and an issue of Wonder Woman. In July 2014, the Teen Titans is relaunched with a new issue 1 written by Pfeifer and art by Kenneth Rocafort.[3]
