Personal History of J.D. Finn is unknown.
J.D. Finn is a pseudonym, derived from the names J.D. Salinger and Huckleberry Finn. The credit was created to hide the identity of whomever wrote issues #824-825 of Action Comics (Volume 1). Due to the increasing unpopularity of writer Chuck Austen due to his work on Marvel Comics' X-Men titles, DC Comics felt that sales of Action Comics were being affected. After he refused to take a pseudonym and move to a lower-tier title, Austen was forced to resign. He speculated in later interviews that J.D. Finn was actually longtime Superman editor Eddie Berganza, though this has never been confirmed. The DC Website has listed Joe Kelly as the writer for these issues, though the solicits still note J.D. Finn as a guest writer.
