|The Untold History of Scarlet O'Neil cover
Russ Stamm, Jr., son of celebrated cartoonist Russell A. Stamm, announced today the launch of www.invisiblescarletoneil.com, the first official website dedicated to the classic 1940s comic strip character Invisible Scarlet O’Neil, proclaimed by many historians to be “the world’s first super-powered heroine”. The site will feature scans of classic comic strips, historical archives and biographical information, as well as forums for fans and collectors.
As part of the launch, a 32-page history entitled The Untold History of Invisible Scarlet O’Neil will be available for sale on line. This first-ever official history features previously-unpublished artwork, photos, and exclusive historical information not available anywhere else. It was compiled by Atlanta-based Atlantis Studios, a well-known sequential art studio that is also working with Russ Stamm, Jr. on a new graphic novel retelling of Invisible Scarlet O’Neil’s classic adventures.
“By the time I was born in 1946 my father was already a well known syndicated cartoonist and his feature character, Scarlet O’Neil, was six years old”, said Russ Stamm, Jr. in a recent interview, “I was fortunate to watch my father at work and see the dedication, energy, and love he put into his art. It is my hope that through this website a new generation can enjoy his work, and get a preview of what she’ll look like in her new incarnation!”
