This Day in Arf History: Happy Birthday to Stan Lee!

There’s too much to say about this great creator of comics, so we’ll just stick to the facts: Stan was born on this day in 1922 and he is the co-creator of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and many other characters. He’s still at it, too! Happy Birthday, Stan!

This Day in Arf History: Ham Fisher’s suicide

Here’s a grisly one, Arf Lovers. On this day in 1955, the body of Ham Fisher was discovered following his suicide in September of that year. But let’s remember him instead as the creator of Joe Palooka, defender of democracy.


This limestone likeness of Joe Palooka resides (appropriately) in Oolitic, Indiana

This Day in Arf History: Otto Soglow’s Birthday

Otto Sogolow began contributing his cartoons to to the New Yorker magazine in the 1920s. It was in this magazine that his most famous creation, the Little King, debuted in 1931. The comic was characterized by its bold, simple shapes and lines and dependence on visual rather than verbal gags, which led to its worldwide popularity. It was later syndicated by King Features and enjoyed some commercial success — the Little King appeared in everything from Betty Boop cartoons to cigarette ads to his own comic book. Otto was born on this day in 1900. At the bottom of this post is a sweet little unpublished drawing of the King from my collection. forbidden Soglow see my new book Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings.
