Glynis Oliver Wein (born October 26, 1949) is an Anglo-American colorist who was active from the 1970s into the early 1990s, working primarily for Marvel Comics.

Life & Career Edit

Oliver was born in England in 1949. She attended New York University and majored in commercial art. While at NYU, she met fellow future Marvel artist Len Wein, and they soon married.[1]

In the fall of 1972, Len Wein and writers Gerry Conway and Steve Englehart crafted a metafictional unofficial crossover spanning titles from both major comics companies. Each comic featured Oliver, Englehart, Conway, and Len Wein interacting with Marvel or DC characters at the Rutland Halloween Parade in Rutland, Vermont. Beginning in Amazing Adventures #16 (by Englehart with art by Bob Brown and Frank McLaughlin), the story continued in Justice League of America #103 (by Len Wein, Dick Dillin and Dick Giordano), and concluded in Thor #207 (by Conway and penciler John Buscema).[2][3][4]

She and Wein divorced after several years of marriage, and she returned to her maiden name in 1985.

Awards & RecognitionEdit

She has been recognized for her work in the industry with a Shazam Award for Best Colorist in 1973.[5]
