The Pin-Ups of Dan DeCarlo 2
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under new releasesDan DeCarlo 10 Dec 2007 10:35 AM

The second book of Dan DeCarlo's pin-up work is heading to book stores. Like the previous volume, the material all comes from DeCarlo's work for the third-rate humor magazines of "a simpler time" (read: chauvanist gags that could conceivably be trumped by any six year old).

DeCarlo was a master and it's difficult to deny the adolescent joy of seeing page after page of Riverdale's nightlife, with statuesque Bettys inviting men up to their room, gal pals chatting away in their lingerie, and Veronica-esque strippers grinding in a burlesque show. Alex Chun has loaded the book up with several dozen originals and includes another 150+ pages of spot-colored magazine page reproductions. PLUS: The great Jaime Hernandez wrote an introduction accompanied by a pin-up of his DeCarlo-influenced character Vivian "Frogmouth." AND: Stan Lee wrote a cover blurb!
