During the height of the Golden Age of Comics, 1941, Ken Bald worked at Fawcett Comics where he worked on superheroes such as Captain Marvel, Captain Midnght, Bulletman, and Captain Midnight. He also rendered meticulous work for Street & Smith on both Mandrake the Magician and Doc Savage.

Returning from WWII as a decorated Captain in 1946, Bald met Stan Lee, who recruited his art talents to Timely Comics. Timely would eventually become the world-renowned Marvel Comics. Bald’s illustration credits include Captain America, The Human Torch, Namor the Sub-Mariner, Blonde Phantom, Sun Girl, Miss America, Millie the Model, and Namora, which he co-created with Lee. Ken holds the Guinness Book of World Records for “Oldest Artist To Illustrate A Comic Book Cover”.
