Marvel Comics creative director Bill Rosemann will be speaking in the Anheuser-Busch Leadership room in the Spellmann Center tomorrow night at 7 p.m. as part of the LU Speaker Series.

Rosemann has worked for the comic book publishers Marvel, DC and CrossGen as a marketing manager, marketing director, creative services manager, editor and creative director. His 20 years in the comic book industry has given him the opportunity to work on many series, such as “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers Undercover,” as well as many iconic characters, such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America and Thor.

Rosemann’s responsibilities include editing monthly comic book releases, collaborating with writers and designers, working with promotional content and overseeing Marvel Custom Solutions, a Marvel Comics studio.

Rosemann and Marvel Custom Studios created an original superhero named Blue Ear in 2012, after four year-old comic book fan Anthony Smith would not wear his blue hearing aid saying to his mother Christina D’Allesandro, “Superheroes don’t wear blue ears.” D’Allesandro emailed Marvel which lead to Rosemann and Marvel Custom Studios creating Blue Ear, who wears a special hearing device that grants him superhuman hearing.
