Daniel S. DeCarlo’s Birthday!

Daniel S. DeCarlo was born on December 12, 1919. He was an American cartoonist who brought us Archie Comics. He created the characters most well-known in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Josie and the Pussy Cats. His comics often had gorgeous bombshells in the mix.

DeCarlo did do some work for Marvel comics in the 1940s, and in the 1950s through a Chicago syndication he created a mailman, Willie Lumpkin who became a minor supporting character in the Fantastic Four.

He has many works, and can provide a lot of inspiration for gift giving. Perhaps an Archie Comic book might be nice for a loved one.

DeCarlo’s greatest works was still Archie comics which he worked to modernize and bring them up to date with the times. His works were televised as well as put in book form and the newspaper. See below.
