COLORISTS:

——————————————————————————————————————————

Stan Goldberg

Stan Goldberg was 16 year old when he joined Timely Comics, which would become Marvel Comics, in 1948. He was the color designer for all the classic Marvel heroes including the Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Spider-Man, and the X-Men. It was he who decided that in order to visually distinguish between the heroes and villains, he would color the heroes bright blues, reds, greens and yellows, and leave the olive-drab greens and burnt hombres for the villains. Because his first name was the same as his boss, Stan Lee, people usually referred to him as Stan G. Stan was born in the Bronx, NY in 1932 and died there on August 31, 2014.

“Darlin'” Dick Ayers was one of the first artist in the Marvel Comics’ Bullpen, specifically known for being the primary artist for the adventures of Marvel’s WW II comic, Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos. But he is better known as the inker for much of Jack “the King” Kirby’s 1960’s Silver Age work, particularly many issues of The Fantastic Four.

George Klein

George Klein was a inker for Timely Comics during the Golden Age of Comics in the early 40s. He did work for DC Comics as well. But probably his most important distinction, which went unacknowledged for a long time, was his inking contribution to the first two issues of The Fantastic Four comic book. He inked John Buscema’s Avengers and Gene Colan’s Daredevil pencils as well as some of Jack Kirby’s Thor work until passing away in 1969 at the age of 49.

Sol Brodsky was one of a handful of artists who did covers for Atlas Comics, which would become Marvel Comics. He left to launch Cracked magazine in the 50s but returned to Atlas, now Timely Comics, in the early 60s to do production work just before it became Marvel Comics and the Marvel Age was launched. A master craftsman, Brodsky designed logos, drew, inked, and finally became production manager in 1964. He left Marvel in 1970 to form a new company called Skywald, but returned to Marvel in the mid-70s where he would stay until his death in 1984.
