  1. Hello comic book fans. I am an artist on a journey to figuring out who my family is. In researching information on my father, my Uncle's name kept coming up in the search, Rudy LaPick. Turns out, he is one of the most well known Comic book artist of all time and was completely underrated. I found several articles on him about how he was hired by Stan Lee in the 1940s and that they worked on numerous comics together. He was the inker for Archie comics for 50 years and didn't get credited for a lot of his works. I know that he did the most inkings than anyone in History and that he worked closely with Gene Colan and Dan Decarlo. I have found many of the comics he has worked on, even including an issue of Wolverine and tons and I mean tons of Archie Comics. He worked with the biggest names in the DC and Marvel world. I have found many Archie issues with my last name on the front page cover. I can't tell you how much of a discovery this has been for me and I just want to know more about him. I can't even find a picture of him on the internet. Please help with anything you may know or have to show me. Thank you! F. LaPick
