The Bronze Age Supergirl artist was born 104 years ago…
The late Bob Oksner — born Oct. 14, 1916 — was probably best known for his tenure on DC’s many humor titles in the Silver Age. We’re talking The Adventures of Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope and whatnot.
But by the early ’70s, DC’s humor titles had faded and the artist segued to superhero titles — most notably (in my mind) Supergirl, both in her own title and in Adventure Comics.
When I imagine the Maid of Might in her most classic Bronze Age look — shorts, puffy sleeves, choker, small Super emblem on the upper chest — I think of Oksner.
