Mary Worth Comic Books are the comic strip that started it all back in 1938. Created by Mildred W. Warren, these comic books focused on the adventures of a young girl, Mary Worth. The comic book was a smash hit among comic book aficionados and collectors alike, and remains one of the best comic books ever. Mary Worth was more than just an ordinary girl who loved to draw comic books, though - she was a talented artist, who created beautiful drawings that were displayed in her comic books.
Mary Worth took two hours and a half to create her very first comic strip. This stunning creation can be found in her own personal album, which was first appearing in syndicated newspapers across the country. Although Mary Worth never intended on keeping her comic strip for long, people began clamoring to have a copy of her first appearing strip. Mary spent a lot of time working on this project, as she had to keep up with all of the new developments that happened in her art career.
Mary Worth Comic Books are still being produced presently. She recently launched a new website, which includes all of her early work, and all of her modern comic strips. In this article, we will take a brief look at some of the history of Mary Worth Comic Books, as well as her latest project, her art.
Mary Worth Comic Books first began in "Diary of a Madwoman" a 1940 comic strip. This was written by her brother, Sam H. Levens. It chronicled the day-to-day happenings of the fictional characters, except that it was based in a real house that belonged to Sam's grandmother. This early work was focused on the life of the Madwoman, as opposed to focusing entirely on her storyline, which was later expanded upon in her final comic strip "The Madwoman of Mars Station".
"The Madwoman of Mars Station" was a comic strip that was published in many newspapers around the United States. It was an incredible feat for a comic strip, considering that the average person at that point in time did not have even a rudimentary knowledge of the web or email. "The Madwoman of Mars Station" was a single page comic, and was published every Wednesday. Mary Worth worked very hard to create this single page, and it was an amazing feat for any comic artist to create something that was printed out from a pressurized press and was readable. The fact that it was read meant that "The Madwoman of Mars Station" was actually creating something that was both entertaining and significant.
Throughout "The Madwoman of Mars Station", several different kinds of sub-plot appeared in each panel of the comic strip. These were related to either Miss Price or her mother, or to her friends, or to various events that took place in the future. For example, there was a short subplot that explained that Mary Worth's father had died in a explosion on Mars. The future events that took place after this happened was shown through small scenes that appeared in panels that occurred later in the story.
One of the things that I really like about "The Madwoman of Mars Station" is the way that the artists used words in their comics. Each panel had a different kind of sentence written in a different color. The words were in the foreground, while the background was colored in that particular shade. These pictures gave readers just a glimpse of the future and helped to keep them entertained for the entire length of the comic strip.
The next strip, "The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist", featured a very similar style to "The Madwoman of Mars Station". Again, the panel backgrounds changed often for different types of statements and pictures were used to explain those sentences. This strip is probably my favorite of all of Mary Worth's strips. It showed the gradual deterioration of optimism over the years.
