    About "John Stanley"

    1. John Stanley

      John Stanley was a comic book creator, best known for his scripting of Little Lulu s comic book exploits from 1945 to approximately 1959 While mostly known for his scripting, Stanley also was an accomplished artist who drew many of his stories, including the earliest issues of Lulu His specialty was humorous stories, both with licensed characters and those of his own creation His writing style has been described as employing colorful, S J Perelman ish language and a decidedly bizarre, macabre wit reminiscent of writer Roald Dahl with storylines that were cohesive and tightly constructed, with nary a loose thread in the plot Cartoonist Fred Hembeck has dubbed him for my money, the most consistently funny cartoonist to work in the comic book medium.Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name.

    1. Wow this is something from my childhood past. What's great is having a good memory of "Nancy" and reading it as a 55-year-old (yet beautifully handsome still) adult and seeing it in new (sort of) eyes. Well, for one, it's totally twisted and surreal strange. Also it is very child-like view of how adults run the world - and the crazy anarchy of childhood and how that plays in that adult world. There is no really subtext or introduction - and that is sort of missed. Stanley didn't invent "Nancy" b [...]


    2. Stanley's cheekily sarcastic characters still appeal to readers young and old today. Not having read any Nancy (aside from daily strips on occasion in childhood) I was surprised and pleased at how laugh-aloud funny these stories were. My 13-year-old enjoyed this as well--we read it together and laughed all the way through!




    3. Issues #146-#150 from the 1957-1958 Dell comic book series. Most notable for the introduction of Oona Goosepimple and her Addams-esque family.
