  • H.T. Webster b.1885

    giovedì, 21 settembre 2017

    Harold Tucker Webster (September 21, 1885 – September 22, 1952) was an American cartoonist known for The Timid Soul, Bridge, Life's Darkest Moments and others in his syndicated series which ran from the 1920s into the 1950s. Because he disliked his given name, his readers knew him as H. T. Webster, and his signature was simply Webster. His friends, however, called him Webby.

    Because of the humor and human interest in his cartoons, he was sometimes compared to Mark Twain, and his art style was quite similar to the work of Clare Briggs. During his lifetime, Webster drew more than 16,000 single-panel cartoons.

  • Lillian Chestney b.1913

    venerdì, 22 settembre 2017

    Lillian Chestney (September 22, 1913 – August 6, 2000) was an American illustrator and painter. She studied in New York City and illustrated children's books, comic books (during the Golden Age of Comic Books), and magazine and book covers at a time when few women held artist positions in the industry.

    Chestney worked as an illustrator and cartoonist in 1940s and 1950s, creating "highly skilled, realistic, and fanciful paintings."

    Chestney illustrated Arabian Nights, including the tales of Aladdin and His Magic Lamp, Alibaba and the Forty Thieves, The Adventures of Sinbad the Sailor and The Story of the Magic Horse. Published in February 1943, it was the eighth issue in the Classic Comics series and her first illustrated comic book. It was released soon after the Hollywood movie of the same name, though of a different subject matter. The story was based on the folk tale One Thousand and One Nights, from the Islamic Golden Age, in which Scheherazade postponed her execution by telling a new tale each night.

    Chestney’s illustrations for Arabian Nights were praised for their fanciful and charming qualities. Chestney’s version of Arabian Nights was last reissued in 1950.

    She then illustrated the comic book based upon the first book of Gulliver's Travels, “Voyage to Lilliput,” written by Jonathan Swift. It was Classic Comics 16th issue, published in December 1943. It was dropped from the reorder list for Classics Illustrated in 1954.

    She created advertisements for cook books and music books and covers for paperback romance novels, but she specialized in illustrating children’s books. Her and her husband's work were featured in magazines such as "McCall's", "The Saturday Evening Post", and "Collier's". The Signet Classic edition of Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy commissioned Chestney for a cover painting in 1964.

    Later in life Chestney painted waterfront scenes of Nova Scotia and New England, based upon the vacations she had taken there with her husband, Stanley Maxwell.

In the 1990s he created stories for the Repérages collection at Dupuis which are often set in the Belgian countryside of a century ago.

  • Will Elder b.1921

    venerdì, 22 settembre 2017

    Will Elder (22 September 1921 – 14 May 2008, USA) was an illustrator and comic book artist who worked in numerous areas of commercial art but is best known for a zany cartoon style that helped launch Harvey Kurtzman’s “Mad” comic book in 1952.

    After World War II (Elder was an Army Engineer, helping to prepare maps for the Normandy invasion and other actions), his career began with inking, usually over John Severin, for strips such as ‘American Eagle’ in “Prize Comics”. From 1950, Elder worked at EC Comics, with Severin, Al Feldstein, and others.

    “Mad” launched at the end of 1952, first as a comic book and later as a magazine. He was present from the first issue, his addition of background jokes and gags quickly helping to define the tenor of the title.

    Elder and Kurtzman left “Mad” in 1957. They collaborated on humor magazines “Trump”, “Humbug”, and “Help!”. From 1962 to 1988 they created ‘Little Annie Fannie’ in “Playboy”.

    Elder was inducted into the The Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 2003.

    Bridwell wrote fiction at DC as well as feature articles. He co-created “The Inferior Five” with Joe Orlando in 1966. He and Ric Estrada launched the “Super Friends” series in 1976, based on the cartoon show. He wrote for many titles, from “Action Comics” to “World’s Finest Comics”.
