Dwyer is best known for his work on Captain America (1987–1990), Danger Unlimited (on the Torch of Liberty story) (1994), Action Comics (1995–1996), Avengers vol. 3 (2001–2003), and his creator-owned series, LCD: Lowest Comic Denominator.
Starbucks sued Dwyer in 2000 for parodying their famous siren logo on the first cover of LCD, as well as selling the image on t-shirts and stickers. With assistance from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, the two parties settled the case out of court. The settlement established that the image was protected speech, citing the "parody" exception in Constitutional law; however, Dwyer is no longer allowed to use the image for financial gain because of its "confusing similarity" to the original material. Nevertheless, the image can be found on many other websites.
LCD: Lowest Comic Denominator had 2 "ashcan" editions, #1 (1997) and #2 (1998), before coming out with full comic versions starting in 1999 later with #0 (a 2nd print was later issued with pieces removed due to the Starbucks legal action), 1, 2, and 3.
He lives in Portland, Oregon, where he is a member of Periscope Studio.
