File:Katy keene cover 1515.jpg

A fashion-heavy comic. The titular protagonist first appeared in Wilbur #5 (Summer, 1945). Wilbur was one of several anthology titles in the Archie Comics line of The Forties. Katy eventually got her own comic in 1949, with some spinoff series devoted to even more costumes. These series were eventually cancelled in The Sixties, but got a revival for a few years in The Eighties, before another short revival in the mid 2000s.

The plot initially centered around Katy and her unnamed sister going to Hollywood to get into acting, and then she gets involved in the fashion industry, as well as getting involved in several boyfriends. The plot was tweaked in both revivals.

Created by Bill Woggon, this wasn't the only fashion-heavy comic, it did gain a strong fanbase, especially by having fans submit costumes, and the artist adapting them to the comics. Katy also had an officially sanctioned fanzine in The Seventies, where one of the fans was future Promoted Fanboy John S Lucas, who would eventually be brought on as one of the main artists for work relating to Katy.

Millie the Model is a similar comic, and the two characters even debuted the same year.
