George Papp Life

George Edward Papp (January 20, 1916 – August 8, 1989) was an American comics artist best known as one of the main artists on DC Comics' long-running Superboy project.

George Papp Career


In early issues of the Superman line of comics, George Papp began his comic book career with an occasional feature and cartoon. He created "Pep Morgan" and "Clip Carson" as the first Action Comics features he worked on. Papp's comics work was mainly for DC Comics, but he did briefly work for Columbia Comics and Harvey Comics as well. In More Fun Comics #56 (June 1940), author Whitney Ellsworth created Congo Bill. In More Fun Comics #73 (Nov. 1941), Papp and Mort Weisinger co-created Green Arrow. Papp's comic career was interrupted by WWII, and he joined the United States Army. Papp returned to DC Comics in 1946 and drew the "Green Arrow" feature in both Adventure Comics and World's Finest Comics until 1958. He drew the "Superboy" feature in Adventure Comics from 1958-1963, as well as the Superboy solo title until 1968. Papp created Bizarro's first comic book appearance in Superboy #68 (Oct. 1958), which was drawn by Papp. In Adventure Comics #283 (April 1961), Robert Bernstein and Papp introduced the Phantom Zone and General Zod into the Superman mythos. Some of the Legion of Super-Heroes' early appearances are among his other projects. For the final time in The Brave and the Bold #71 (April–May 1967), he drew the Green Arrow figure. Papp was fired by DC in 1968, as with many other well-known writers and artists who had filed for health and retirement funds. In Superboy #148 (June 1968), his last new work in the comics industry appeared. He later worked in commercial art and television.
