John Stanley in the 1950s: a Comics Bibliography

An Annotated Chronology, 1950-1960

Authored by Frank M. Young
Edition: 1

Writer and sometimes artist of the million-selling Dell Comics magazines MARGE'S LITTLE LULU and MARGE'S TUBBY, John Stanley was unknown to his legion of fans. Until 1964, the prolific and talented Stanley--considered by many the finest mainstream comics writer in American history--was not allowed to sign his name to his work.

This lavishly illustrated, densely annotated chronological guide explores John Stanley's most creative and prolific decade--the 1950s. Issue by issue, story by story, author Frank M. Young (considered a leading expert on Stanley's work) offers a definitive look at a genius writer's most important and popular output.

Illustrated with thumbnails of every comic book cover (beautifully scanned by Alan Hutchinson), plus a 20-page gallery of Stanley's charming cover drawings, and decorated with various ephemera, this book is the most thorough and important yet published on the work of John Stanley. Also available in a black-and-white regular edition.
