About Vic: (credit to Jeff for this description) Legendary artist and Marine Corps veteran Victor ‘Quick Vic’ Carrabotta began his artistic career during the Golden Age of comics. An accomplished illustrator and artistic director, Carrabotta is a graduate of what would become the School of Visual Arts in New York. When he applied for a job in comics, Jack Kirby politely sent him on his way but, showing him to the door, found Vic’s expectant wife awaiting her husband’s return. Unable to turn the father-to-be and unemployed newcomer away, Kirby sent the young artist with a note to Stan Lee, who gave Carrabotta the five-page story “The House on the Hill” for Atlas’ Astonishing #13 from 1952. From this humble beginning, he began a long and illustrious career in the creative arts that spans seven decades. His comics work spans everything from horror and science fiction to Westerns and mystery. Later career highlights include original design concepts for Disney movie posters (on 101 Dalmatians and Pirates of the Caribbean), development and direction of marketing campaigns for such diverse customers as Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, AT&T, Readers Digest, and Mother Earth News. His storyboarding and conceptual artwork include such recognizable accounts as Advil, Jell-O, and Kenner Toys. His most enduring legacy, however, remains his comic book work as one of Stan Lees go-to artists at Atlas Comics (later Marvel) for such classic series’ as Journey into Mystery, Kid Colt Outlaw, Marvel Tales, and The Rawhide Kid, among many others. So swift and sure was Mr. Carrabottas hand at sketch and rendering, he quickly earned the nickname he bears to this day: Quick Vic.
