Stan Kaye’s birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Stan Kaye (24 November 1916 – 21 June 1967, USA) was an artist who worked at DC Comics from 1941 to 1962. He began drawing humor strips such as ‘Drafty’ and ‘Hayfoot Henry’.
He and writer Alfred Bester created ‘Genius Jones’ in 1942, a kid detective who fought crime in costume (and who was briefly revived in 2005).
Kaye became Wayne Boring’s regular ‘Superman’ inker around 1943 and theirs became the defining look of the character for many years. In addition to stories and covers in the comic books, they produced the Sunday newspaper strip and many of the daily episodes.
He then made the transition to Curt Swan’s ‘Superman’ pencils in the late 1950s, including on the daily newspaper strip.
