Above: my friend Stan Goldberg and some of his work.
"'One day I was watching a documentary on television with my family,' [Stan Goldberg] said, 'and it showed [pop artist] Roy Lichtenstein holding up a comic and saying that it was an inspiration for his work – and I recognized it as one of my ‘Millie the Model’ books!'"

One of the nicest buys in the business, Stan Goldberg, has been drawing ever since he was a kid. He started in comics as a teenager, taking the subway from the Bronx to the Empire State Building where he would assist Human Torch creator Carl Burgos in the Timely Offices (now called Marvel).
Flash forward several decades and Stan is still in the business, as the chief artist on MLJ's flagship character ARCHIE. His work on the ARCHIE GETS MARRIED books are now in a slipcased hardcover edition from Abrams. IDW will publish THE ART OF STAN GOLDBERG next year.
The Queens Tribune has a great profile of the prolific comics artist by Barbara Arnstein here.
