5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Morrison Archives DAN DeCARLO'S Amazing Career With Respect and Insight!, May 7, 2008

This review is from: Innocence & Seduction Art of Dan DeCarlo (Hardcover)
To All Dan DeCarlo Devotees:

Mega Kudos to the talented and intelligent BILL MORRISON for all of his sincere dedication in coordinating a book that archives a part of artist DAN DeCARLO'S amazing career!

So few know that DeCarlo had a most interesting life as a widely published comic artist & cartoonist before his association with the Archie Comics people.

Just look at his work..... You can sense the creative and physical energy Dan used to produce these extraordinary and accurate renderings, first with his pencils, then in ink. Where he got this ability to put so much "power" and "animation" into each story frame is what made DeCarlo so awesome, if not magical. He could "draw" human emotions into his work that viewers would later accurately "feel" and recognize. Very, very few artists have the ability to do this, but Dan DeCarlo was one of the gifted ones that could, and he seemed to do so effortlessly.

Dan's drawing style, accurate sense of visual proportion, and perspective drawing abilities were so realistic that they absolutely astounded me. DeCarlo did it ALL by himself, without relying on the many computer software programs used by publishing artists today.

I wish you all could see my HUGE collection of vintage BETTY & VERONICA, JOSIE, SABRINA and other Archie comic books I have here at home, all with front cover and inside story art by Dan DeCarlo, my favorite comic artist for all time.

I hope Morrison and others continue to honor DAN DeCARLO as the legend he was, AND STILL IS, with more publications that showcase his work!

From Dan's Big Fan,

DeCarlo is definitely awesome. I really wish Archie Comics would reprint JOSIE, SABRINA, and BETTY AND VERONICA collections in book form. Or IDW or Dark Horse, the other companies doing reprints of Archie. For me it's not really about Archie, it's all about the girls. Dan DeCarlo's girls, specifically. I'd even kill for a MILLIE THE MODEL collection of his work (or any of his Atlas/Marvel work), but that's about as likely as hell freezing over.

I got that DVD-ROM of the BETTY AND VERONICA: THE BRONZE AGE COLLECTION, and I guess that's about as close as I'm going to get. I sure would rather have those as book collections, though. And still no SABRINA or JOSIE collections, except for that one "Best of Josie and the Pussycats" book from Archie Comics. After that, nothing.
