Lucille Ball Comic Strip Bio-1950







This is from the FANCY PANTS issue of DC's FEATURE FILMS, a series that adapted movies into comic book format. This three page biography of Lucy appeared at a time when the redheaded actress was in the final months of her radio series, MY FAVORITE HUSBAND co-starring Richard Denning (later the Governor of Hawaii on TV's HAWAII 5-0). The writers had no way of knowing what kind of fame was waiting just around the corner for her. Before long, everybody LOVED Lucy!
