When William Van Horn’s first Disney comics were released in May 1988, nobody could have guessed that he was to become one of the most popular artists some years later. Until today, he has already created more than 150 stories.
Bill made his stories for several production offices.
From 1988 through 1990 he worked for the U.S. Disney licensee Gladstone Publishing.
When the Walt Disney Company took over the comic production in 1990, Bill delivered his stories directly to Disney.
Since 1991 he has drawn for Danish publisher Egmont, the Disney licensee for Scandinavia, the German-speaking region, eastern Europe and parts of Asia.
William Van Horn is still drawing for Egmont. Besides, he has repeatedly worked for other companies.
As part of an advertising campaign, he illustrated several one-pagers for an orange-juice manufacturer in the early 1990s. The first of those is currently presumed lost, however.
In 1994 and 1996 he did two last comics for Gladstone.
And for the new American Disney licensee Gemstone Bill drew a three-page frame story for Carl Barks’s “The Magic Hourglass.”
