Professional History

Gasparo "Gus" Ricca was a commercial illustrator of the 1930s, with works published in the Liberty, Esquire and Collier's. He entered the comic book field c. 1940, working for comic book packager Harry "A" Chesler.

Among his early credits were the series "Dale of the FBI", and "Dynamic Man" for Timely Comics. His other credits include comics for publishers St. John, ACG, Street & Smith, and Fawcett, working on characters such as the Whisperer, Diamons Jack, Ibis, and Jim Dolan.

In 1944, the publisher Chesler launched a new comics imprint as "Dynamic Comics", and Ricca was hired as their art director. He served in this position until 1946.

In comic book history, Ricca is primarily related for a series of weird and macabre covers for various magazines. He seems to have left the comics field in the early 1950s.
