Boody Rogers

Boody Rogers, who studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and the Chicago Art Institute, was one of the main contributors to the first American comic book, The Funnies, which began in 1936. Rogers had been active since the 1920s, working mainly on syndicated comics, and drawing gag cartoons for magazines like Life, Judge, Colliers and the Saturday Evening Post. He assisted Zack Mosley on Smilin’ Jack, and worked on other syndicated features like Deadwood Gulch and Possum Holler throughout the 1930s. He created his own nationally published comics — Hillbilly Babe and Sparky Watts (1942-50). For Feature Comics, he worked on titles like Babe, Dudley and Leroy.

Rogers retired from comics in 1952 and opened two art supply shops in Arizona. He died in 1996.
