BLACK HISTORY MONTH/ELMER CECIL STONER


Born on October 20, 1897, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to Mary Alice and George W. Stoner, Elmer Cecil Stoner would go on to become the first comic book artist of African American decent.


While working at Woolworth’s as a teenager, Stoner learned commercial illustration, and soon after began to working as a freelance artist.


Stoner worked on Detective Comics #1, creating its' first featured character "Speed Saunders".


After his death, his wife answered a questionnaire saying that he is the unnamed artist that helped create "Mr. Peanut." A distinction that has long gone unacknowledged by planters .

More notably, Stoner worked as an artist illustrating early "Blue Beetle" Comics.
