Published in January 1950 by Marvel, Comedy Comics #10 marked the conclusion of Marvel’s 1948 Comedy Comics series, which showcased its trio of leading ladies: Hedy De Vine (also known as “of Hollywood”), Millie the Model, and Tessie the Typist.

  1. Hedy De Vine (aka of Hollywood):
    • Hedy De Vine was portrayed as a glamorous Hollywood starlet, embodying the typical persona of a stylish and sophisticated celebrity, navigating the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown.
  2. Millie the Model:
    • Created by artist Ruth Atkinson and writer Stan Lee, Millie Collins (her full name) became one of Marvel’s most popular characters during the late 1940s and 1950s. Millie was depicted as a young woman pursuing a career in modeling, often finding herself in humorous situations as she navigated the fashion industry.
  3. Tessie the Typist:
    • Tessie the Typist was another character featured in the same series. She was created as a portrayal of the working woman of the time, representing the typists and secretaries prevalent in office settings.

Stan Lee served as the editor for the series, overseeing the creation and development of the characters and stories. Art credits for the series were often not explicitly given, but several notable artists contributed to the illustrations, including Morris Weiss, Harvey Kurtzman and/or Dan DeCarlo.

With a final flourish of ink, Comedy Comics #10 bid adieu, closing out another chapter in comic book history.
