Gary Friedrich (born August 21, 1943, Jackson, Missouri). is an American comic book writer best known for his Silver Age stories for Marvel Comics' Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos, and for the following era's Monster of Frankenstein series and co-creating the supernatural motorcyclist Ghost Rider.

Friedrich ... no relation to fellow comics writer Mike Friedrich ... was the first successful new writer brought in to the burgeoning 1960s Marvel after fellow Missourian Roy Thomas. Succeeding Thomas on Sgt. Fury, Friedrich and the art team of Dick Ayers and John Severin produced a World War II series for the Vietnam years, combining militaristic camaraderie and gung ho humor with a regretful sense of war as a terrible last resort. The humanistic military drama was noted for its semi-anthological "The" stories, such as "The Medic" and "The Deserter". Additionally, one story was an homage to / retcon of the movie Casablanca, and Friedrich annuals caught up with the Howlers in both the 1950s Korean conflict, and in the 'Nam.
