Роберт Шнакенберг (Robert Schnakenberg, родился 19 марта 1969) - американский писатель.
Robert Schnakenberg (born March 19, 1969) is a self-styled “author and raconteur” from Brooklyn, New York. He is best known for writing biographical comic books, as well as a series of popular reference books about entertainment, sports, and world history.
Schnakenberg began his career in the early 1990s as the head writer for Personality Comics, an independent publisher specializing in biographical comic books. He authored more than 50 comic books under a variety of pseudonyms, including the popular Spoof Comics parodies Fantastic Femmes and X-Babes. He created the superheroine Headlights and authored the groundbreaking AIDS awareness superhero comic Healthman. His 1992 comic book Soul Trek, a humorous mash-up of Star Trek and Soul Train, is part of the permanent collection of The Museum of Uncut Funk, a virtual museum “dedicated to the celebration and preservation of the Funk.”
Schnakenberg's artistic collaborators during this period included Allan Jacobsen, Adam Pollina, Ron Joseph, Ken Becker, Garrett Berner, Keith Quinn, Scott Harrison, and Kirk Lindo. Schnakenberg also wrote sports comics for Personality's main competitor, Revolutionary Comics.
After retiring from comic book publishing in 1994, Schnakenberg returned to the field in 2010 as a freelance contributor for the biographical comic book company Bluewater Productions. He authored the popular Michelle Obama: Year One comic along with biographies of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, telejournalist Barbara Walters, and others.
Schnakenberg is the subject of a forthcoming monograph entitled Lunacy and Sorrow: The Life and Art of Robert Schnakenberg, to be published in 2021 by SUNY/Brockport University Press.
