The Pin-Up Art of For Nearly Half a Decade, Dan Decarlo was the Archie Artist. DeCarlo's rendition of Riverdale's teenage populace entertained and influenced generations of young people as he guided the characters through their often goofy trials and tribulations. Without a doubt, however, DeCarlo is best known for defining the look of every adolescent boy's fantasy, Betty and Veronica, with their trademark upturned noses, tight sweaters and barely there mini-skirts. Next to the innocence that was Riverdale, however, and unbeknownst to many, DeCarlo also populated another world, which he filled with cartoons featuring girls in lingerie-and sometimes less-and often bearing an un-canny resemblance to his perennial blande next door and spoiled brunette socialite. From 1956 to 1963, DeCarlo produced hundreds of pin-up cartoons for the Humorama-line of girlie digests. Following The Glamour Girls of Bill Ward and The Pin-Up Art of Jack Cole, Fantagraphics Books continues its dedication to showcasing the best of the classic pin-up cartoon artists by collecting for the first time over 200 of DeCarlo's sexiest pin-ups.Chun, Alex is the author of 'Pin-up Art Of Dan Decarlo', published 2005 under ISBN 9781560976196 and ISBN 1560976195.
