Dan DeCarlo Memorial
John Lucas
Mary Smith

  Dan DeCarlo had been the definitive Archie artist for nearly 50 years. It was his art that was used to teach new artists what the Archie gang looked like. He also created Josie and the Pussycats, Sabrina the Teen-age Witch and drew Millie the Model and Chilly for Marvel. He passed away Dec. 19 at age 82. John Lucas is a fan of Dan's and has drawn Katy Keene and Betty and Veronica for Archie Comics. Mary Smith is probably the most knowledgeable Archie and Dan DeCarlo fan around. They joined us for this two-hour Christmas special celebrating Dan's life as well as mourning his passing. Two hours wasn't enough.

Then we took listener phone calls.

Kurt Schaffenberger Memorial
Howard Bender

  Kurt is best known as the Lois Lane artist from the 1950s - 1970s (so much so that they pasted his distinctive likenesses of Lois and Lana Lang onto other people's art, particularly for covers), but he also drew Captain Marvel (Shazam!) in the '40s and worked for ACG in the 1960s. Howard was his assistant, friend and neighbor for many years.
