Innocence and Seduction: The Art of Dan DeCarlo: Expanded Edition

On sale date: October 8, 2024

The definitive retrospective of Dan DeCarlo, the great Archie Comics artist — a fitting tribute to the life and art of one of the world’s all-time best cartoonists, lavishly designed and now expanded with nearly 350 illustrations, including rare cartoons and strips, and of course, lots of those fabulous DeCarlo ladies!

Dan DeCarlo worked mostly on wholesome all-American features like Archie’s Girls Betty and Veronica and My Friend Irma, but he populated these innocent stories with his irresistibly attractive women. His unique blend of hilarious homespun humor and libido-sparking art made DeCarlo’s work outshine the competition. Though best known as the definitive Archie Comics artist and creator of Josie and the Pussycats and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, DeCarlo also brought his unique style to dozens of other characters including Millie the Model, Big Boy, Batman, and The Simpsons.

With Innocence and Seduction: The Art of Dan DeCarlo, DeCarlo fan, friend, and fellow cartoonist Bill Morrison has produced the ultimate book on this remarkable artist, lavishly designed with nearly 350 illustrations. Included are rare World War II–era cartoons, original Humorama pinups, seldom-seen newspaper strips, examples of his justly famous commercial comics work, and of course, lots and lots of those fabulous DeCarlo ladies! Full color and black-and-white illustrations and photographs throughout.


Full color and black and white.
