Jan Strnad is an American comic-book-, screen- and prose-writer.
Jan Strnad is known primarily as a writer of science-fiction and of horror, and a writer of comic books specifically, often teaming up with artist Richard Corben.
However, his intersection with the Disney universe have primarily been in the form of screenwriting: after penning two episodes of TaleSpin in 1990, Strnad continued contributing scripts to Disney shows throughout the 1990s, and, more sporadically, the 2000s. His latest to date was Pluto's Tale, a 2012 episode of the preschooler Mickey Mouse series Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Among his most notable contributions to Disney lore are his cowriting credits on The Return of Jafar and on the Darkwing Duck pilot, Darkly Dawns The Duck.
