John Stanley in the 1960s: a Comics Bibliography

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.

By this time, Stanley had embarked on a new phase of his career--writing and drawing regular series of his own creation. It was his most satisfying period in comics, and it ended far too soon.

This lavishly illustrated, densely annotated chronological guide explores John Stanley's final and crucial decade as a comics creator--the 1960s. 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, plus a 24-page selection of stories illustrated by the great cartoonist Bill Williams, this book is the most thorough and important yet published on the work of John Stanley.
