Skelton began working for DC Comics and Marvel Comics. After the studio fire, Skelton began painting oil and began using textbooks on a regular basis.
Along with DC and Marvel, Skelton also worked on the comedy “Dallas” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
In addition, when singer Prince changed his name to a brand in 1992, Skelton wrote a fictional story about a joke, “Prince: 3 Gold Chains.”
“I didn’t make the mark or anything, but I wrote the sign when it was first presented to Prince in the picture book,” he said. “He was also in it.”
As an illustrator in the comic book series, Skelton met other greats, including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, who invited Skelton to dine with him and his wife.
“All that I bought with these manufacturers that I grew up with, it was amazing to meet and get to know some of them,” he said.
With Marvel, Skelton worked on some of the company’s biggest projects, such as “Infinity Gauntlet,” as well as “X-Men” and “The Avengers.”
“The work of the comic books was hard to find, and I can see that you are growing, it is difficult because you are making a lot of money and they want to find cheap people,” he said. “And I work well, but I can see the writing on the wall.”
