Grand Comics Database
originally shared:

Ira R. Schnapp (October 10, 1892 – July 1969) was a logo designer and letterer who defined the DC Comics house style for thirty years.

in 1938, Schnapp was hired by comic book publisher DC Comics for his first job. It was an association that lasted for thirty years. Schnapp worked for DC from 1938 to 1968, creating scores of logos and lettering countless covers and interiors, yet ironically he only received a single in-print credit (in Inferior Five #6, published in 1966). Most of Schnapp's work was done on front covers, and "mere" cover letterers (or interior letterers, for that matter) were never credited in the era in which Schnapp worked.

In mid-1938, Schnapp created the iconic Action Comics logo for DC. He also refined and perfected the Superman logo in 1940. Over time, Schnapp designed scores of logos for the company's comic books, virtually defining DC's look for 30 years. In addition to the Action and Superman logos, some of the more celebrated logos Schnapp designed include Adventure Comics; The Atom; The Flash; Green Lantern; Hawkman; Justice League of America; Metal Men; Secret Origins; and Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane.

With Superman editor Mort Weisinger, Schnapp designed and hand-lettered the DC house ads "Coming… Super-Attractions!" which proliferated throughout the pages of the company's comics.

Among many other books, Schnapp was the original interior letterer on Superman and Green Lantern.

In 1955, with changes brought about by Dr. Fredric Wertham and the adoption of the Comics Code, Schnapp designed the Comics Code Authority seal, which became a fixture on comic book covers for over forty years.

Happy birthday, Ramona Fradon!

She's one of the best of us.


Grand Comics Database
originally shared:

Ramona Fradon (born October 1, 1926) is an American comic book and comic strip artist, known for her work illustrating Aquaman and Brenda Starr, and co-creating the superhero Metamorpho.

Fradon entered cartooning just after graduating from the Parsons School of Design. Comic book letterer George Ward, a friend of her husband (New Yorker cartoonist Dana Fradon), asked her for samples of her artwork to pitch for job openings. She landed her first assignment on the DC Comics feature Shining Knight. Her first regular assignment was illustrating an Adventure Comics backup feature starring Aquaman, for which she co-created the sidekick Aqualad.

Following her time with Aquaman, and taking a break to have her daughter, Fradon returned to co-create Metamorpho, drawing four issues of the series. She returned briefly to design a few covers for the title.

From 1965 to 1972, Fradon left comics to raise her daughter. In 1972, she returned to DC, with assignments drawing Superman, Batman, and Plastic Man. Her other work includes Freedom Fighters and Super Friends (which she penciled for almost its entire run). She also worked for Marvel Comics during this period, but left after only two assignments: a fill-in issue of Fantastic Four, and the never-published fifth issue of The Cat.

In 1980, Dale Messick retired from drawing the newspaper strip Brenda Starr, and Fradon became the artist for it, until her own retirement in 1995.

Fradon was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2006.

She contributed pencils to the 2010 graphic novel The Adventures of Unemployed Man, the 2012 graphic novel The Dinosaur That Got Tired of Being Extinct, and the collection The Art of Ramona Fradon.
