Walter Moers (born 24 May 1957, Mönchengladbach, Germany) is one of the best-known and commercially most successful German comic creators and authors.
Moers has been publishing since 1984. He first became known with cartoon-like comics that were marked by an ironic view of the world and a conscious violation of political correctness. Many of his works first appeared in the satirical magazine Titanic. Although he doesn't contribute to the magazine anymore, he's still listed as contributor. His last work published in 'Titanic' was the Superhero-Parody 'Deadman' (not to be confused with the DC-Comics Superhero of the same name, Moers Character was just a dead man lying in a coffin for three pages without a word or any change in the pictures).
