    Steve A. Douglas - 'SAD'
Search for 'Steve A. Douglas - 'SAD'' on Amazon

Stephen A. Douglas was one of many artists who made the transition from newspaper comic strips to comic books. However, as the art editor (and, really the effective day-to-day editor) for Famous Funnies from its inception to its demise, he may be regarded as especially significant.

He was essentially the first editor of the first American comic book. Given that he implemented innovations such as printing wholly original work ó in an era when the norm was to reprint material that had originally appeared in newspapers ó†he may be regarded as one of the "founding fathers" of the American comics industry.

[Source: Goulart, Ron. Comic Book Culture: An Illustrated History. Collector's Press, Inc. 2000. p. 11-12.]

Date of Birth:
Birthplace: Brooklyn, NY USA

Douglas occasionally signed his work with only his initials. This led to the probably intentional irony of a comic with the word "Funnies" in its title bearing the word "sad" on some of its covers.
