Katy Keene, a character created by Bill Woggon, has appeared in several comic book series published by Archie Comics since 1945. She is a model/actress/singer known as America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions.

Her comics were interactive in that readers were encouraged to submit original drawings of outfits and accessories for her and her friends to wear, as well as designs for automobiles, homes, interiors, rocket ships, trailers and boats. These designs were used in the comics with credit given to published submissions. Many issues featured paper dolls of Katy in various costumes. The character was ranked 57th in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics” list.

I used to love the paper dolls that came in the comics. Heck, I even made my own dresses at the time. And yes, that is before I knew it was bad to cut stuff out of your comics. 🙂 The stories never really stuck with me, it was more the art. The dolls, and fantastic outfits. And as a kid, it was more appropriate for me, than say, Batman. LOL oh so mom thought. She also approved of those romance comics, that I thought was weird. I mean seriously, have you ever read one of them? OY VEY! lol

And I found some cute pix of Katy to share! Enjoy!
