John Stanley in the 1940s: A Comics Bibilography

Compiled and Annotated by Frank M. Young

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 first decade of comics creation--the 1940s. 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 first, groundbreaking efforts as a comics creator.

Newly revised, this edition is illustrated with thumbnails of every comic book cover, plus four complete rare comics stories and a cover gallery, and profiles of seven important characters in John Stanley's 1940s comics. This book is the most thorough and important yet published on the work of John Stanley.

There is no longer a standard black and white version of this book available.
