Daniel "Danny" Fingeroth is a comic book writer and editor, better known for a long stint as group editor of the Spider-Man books at Marvel Comics. He edited Write Now! (TwoMorrows Publishing), a magazine about the craft of comics writing which he created, which ran 20 issues from 2003 to 2009. He wrote the 2004 Continuum Publishing book Superman on the Couch: What Superheroes Really Tell Us About Ourselves and Our Society. Fingeroth also wrote The Rough Guide to Graphic Novels (which features artwork by Mike Manley). Fingeroth has taught comics writing at New York University, The New School, Media Bistro and Soho Gallery for Digital Art. In 2012, Fingeroth and the staff of Columbia University organized Comic New York, a symposium marking writer Chris Claremont's donation of his archives of all his major writing projects over the previous 40 years to the University's Rare Book & Manuscript Library. The symposium, which was held March 24–25, 2012 at Columbia's Low Memorial Library, featured discussion panels with Fingeroth, Claremont, and numerous other mainstream and independent comics creators.

I got a good mind to join a club and beat you over the head with it. We return to Wisconsin Comic Con! Continuing our series of talking to comic professionals, we talk with Danny Fingeroth about the Marx Brothers' classic, "Duck Soup!" Remember, you're fighting for this woman's honor, which is probably more than she ever did.
