9781600102066: Scorchy Smith And The Art Of Noel Sickles

Noel Sickles, along with his lifelong friend, Milton Caniff, changed the face of comics in the 1930s, when they invented a new form of graphic storytelling. They moved away from the simple outline approach then popular, and created a chiaroscuro style that still influences comics artists today. Having blazed a trail through the comics world, Sickles left the medium in favor of a 40-year career as one of America’s most successful magazine illustrators. A regular at Life magazine, his work also appeared in Look, Reader’s Digest, National Geographic, and The Saturday Evening Post.

A massive, comprehensive, oversized 392-page volume that collects, for the first time, every Sickles Scorchy Smith strip, from December 1933 through November 1936. It also features, in a 140-page biography, an extensive examination of Sickles’s life and the decades-long influence of his work, while also showcasing the full breadth of his career as one of America’s foremost magazine illustrators.

About the Author :

Born in Chillicothe, Ohio in 1912, Noel Sickles was working as a staff artist at the Associated Press when he was assigned to take over the 1930s aviation adventure series Scorchy Smith. Although he only drew it for three brief years, the innovation he brought to the artform is a milestone in the history of newspaper comic strips. Sickles won the National Cartoonist Society’s Advertising and Illustration Award in both 1960 and 1962.

From Booklist :

Few current comics fans know his name or work, and he drew comics for only three years, yet Sickles’ influence contradicts his obscurity. In late 1933, he took over the newspaper adventure strip Scorchy Smith, and after initially aping his predecessor’s crude style, developed a visual approach marked by chiaroscuro and cinematic techniques that would sweep the comics pages. Milton Caniff, who shared a studio with Sickles, would take the style to greater commercial success in Terry and the Pirates. As for Sickles, he abandoned comics in 1936 and devoted the remaining four decades of his career to magazine illustration, advertising, and other commercial art. This massive volume is comprised of two sections, each of which could be a separate book: a detailed biography of the artist by Bruce Canwell, accompanied by copious examples of his various kinds of work; and the complete run of Scorchy, here appearing between covers for the first time. Such lovingly lavish treatment has been accorded few cartoonists, but Sickles, despite his lack of renown, thoroughly warrants it. --Gordon Flagg
