Behind most successful actors and directors stands an agent. Mike Friedrich is the best-known agent in the field that delivered the movies "The Mask" and "Timecop," the TV series "X-Men" and "Lois and Clark" and the multimedia sensations "Batman" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Friedrich is an agent for comic-book creators. From 1982 until the early 1990s, his Berkeley-based Star-Reach Productions was virtually the only agency devoted strictly to comic-book writers and artists.
