creating comic

. For content, Fox contracted with comics packager Eisner & Iger, one of a handful of companies creating comic books on demand for publishers entering the field. Writer-artist Will Eisner, at Victor Fox's request for a hero to mimic the newly created hit Superman, created the superhero Wonder Man (Wonder Man (Fox Publications)) for Fox's first publication, ''Wonder Comics'' #1 (May 1939), signing his work "Willis". Eisner said in interviews throughout his later life that he had protested the derivative nature of the character and story, and that when subpoenaed after National Periodical Publications, the company that would evolve into DC Comics, sued Fox, alleging Wonder Man was an illegal copy of Superman, Eisner testified that this was so, undermining Fox's case; Andelman, Bob. ''Will Eisner: A Spirited Life'' (M Press: Milwaukie (Milwaukie, Oregon), Oregon, 2005) ISBN 1-59582-011-6A, pp. 44–45 Eisner even depicts himself doing so in his semi-autobiographical graphic novel ''The Dreamer (The Dreamer (graphic novel))''. ''The Dreamer: A Graphic Novella Set During the Dawn of Comic Books (The Dreamer (graphic novel))'' (DC Comics : New York City, 1986 edition) ISBN 9781563896781. Reissued by W. W. Norton & Company : New York City, London, 2008. ISBN 978-0393328080, p. 42 However, a transcript of the proceeding, uncovered by comics historian Ken Quattro in 2010, indicates Eisner in fact supported Fox and claimed Wonder Man as an original Eisner creation.
