Spotlight On Warren Sattler - Comic Strip and Comic Book Artist
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Comic Book Artists

 

Spotlight On

 Warren Sattler

 

Comic Strip and Comic Book Artist!

 

I was reminded of an archived blog post of ours after picking up some more Charlton Comics this weekend to read and to list later. Several were drawn by Warren Sattler....

Earlier this year we sold a Charlton Comics Book, Yang #5 from our eBay Featured Store to a buyer.

When we received payment from the buyer, I noticed that there was a note as follows:

"Warren Sattler, the artist of this comic, just happens to be my Uncle. Nice to have this issue in my collection! Thanks!
Theodore Sattler"

The Item listing was: #350011996476
Item Title: YANG #5 VF+ Martial Arts Charlton Comic Book SATTLER

After Theodore received his comic book, we corresponded further, and I found out more about Warren Sattler I wasn't aware of as follows:

"My Uncle did both the Yang and Billy the Kid comic books and he also freelanced alot doing bits for Cracked and Mad magazines.

He also did a lot of substitute work for the daily comics as well where an artist would take leave for whatever reason and he would just fill in drawing the strip in that particular artist's style. I just picked up one of his Country singles on eBay also. Yep, he's a singer too!
Thanks!
-Tad Sattler"

Well, earlier this year I had not known about all the above accomplishments, was aware of some of his work for Charlton, and figured that most of our blog readers would not know this information Tad sent over either.

So, since I picked up some more Billy the Kids for my own collection, it reminded that one of the reasons for our blog is to mention those artists and writers that don't get a lot of promotion for their past or even current work!

Once I again... My thanks to Tad (Theodore) for the info and for submitting the pic of his Uncle used at the top left of this blog post!

Thanks for reading this popular culture - comics - comic books blog post and welcome to all of our new readers since this topic was first blogged!

The above picture of Warren Sattler was from his induction into the Meriden, Connecticut Hall of Fame, courtesy of Theodore (Tad) Sattler.

The following is from data that was found on the web:

Warren Sattler started cartooning at an early age. His first published work was in a newspaper when he was age 15.

Warren received his education at the Wilcox Technical School in Meriden, Connecticut.

For those of you that have seen the ads throughout the years... he later taught at the Famous Artists School from 1957 to 1962! That I thought was interesting! 

Then in the 1960s, he assisted on the comic strips Barnaby and The Jackson Twins. Warren also had his own strip, Grubby, that was published from 1964 to 1997.

It was in the 1970s that Warren Sattler produced art for comic books, in particular for Charlton Comics Group!

Some of those Charlton Comics titles he worked on included Billy the Kid, Fightin' Army, Fightin' Marines, Ghost Manor, Ghostly Haunts, and Yang.

During the same time period he worked as an illustrator for Cracked magazine, National Lampoon, and also Playboy.

Warren also found the time to create a second syndicated comic strip in 1980! That was Swamp Brats, which was a Sunday-only strip.

Also, as Tad suggested in the column to the right, Warren also ghosted on such newspaper strips as Bringing Up Father, Comics for Kids, and Gil Thorp during the 1980s and 1990s.

For all of the above work and more, he was inducted into the Meriden Hall of Fame in the Year 2003.

I am glad that this Blog finally was able to bring Warren Sattler's many accomplishments to our readership with this blog post! Again my thanks to Theodore (Tad) Sattler for his contributions!
