KEN F. LEVIN is a twice nominated EMMY producer who co-founded the iconic independent comics company 1First Comics, winner of HARVEY, EAGLE and RIF (READING IS FUNDAMENTAL) Awards, where Ken has served as publisher for more than ten years. In the 1990’s Ken’s personal and professional relationships with a small, select group of comics’ creators expanded to comic property management. Many of those creators have become some of the biggest stars in comics today, including, as examples, Mike Mignola, Jimmy Palmiotti, Max Allan Collins, Bill Willingham, and Garth Ennis. It was at this time that Levin began a campaign in Hollywood for recognition of independent comics titles that were not Marvel and DC, and for the writers who created them to be recognized as professional creatives and not dismissed as “comics people.” That campaign’s success is today nowhere more evident than on the screens of televisions and multi-plexes every day. Among those successes: • Ken handled the rights deals for Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning feature film ROAD TO PERDITION (starring Tom Hanks, directed by Sam Mendes), based upon Max Allan Collins’ graphic novel, the motion picture credited with causing the paradigm shift in how Hollywood perceives comic art story-telling material. Later, Ken put together deals for the feature film A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE (starring Tom Sizemore) from Mr. Collins’ screenplay, and QUARRY (HBO/Cinemax), from Max’ novels, with Ken and Max as Executive Producers. • Ken set up and was Executive Producer on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s PREACHER (four seasons on AMC Network) • Ken Co-Produced the animated THE AMAZING SCREW-ON HEAD for SyFy Channel (voiced by Paul Giamatti and David Hyde Pierce), and was Executive Producer for the 22 episode TV series PAINKILLER JANE (starring Kristanna Loken), based on the Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada EVENT COMICS series. • Ken produced the feature film THE SCRIBBLER (starring Arrow’s Katie Cassidy) based on the First Comics graphic novel THE SCRIBBLER by Dan Schaffer; Ken set up WANTED (starring Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman) at Universal Studios; and Ken did all of the deals for the hit feature films HELLBOY, HELLBOY II, and the 2019 HELLBOY reboot. • Ken set up and is Executive Producer of Garth Ennis’ THE BOYS, the biggest his AMAZON Prime has ever had. Season Four is currently filming in Toronto; the animated spin-off THE BOYS PRESENTS: DIABOLICAL was nominated for an Outstanding Animated Short Series EMMY, and a live action spin-off series VARSITY: GEN V is in production.
