Eric Stanton was born Ernest Stanzoni in New York into a family of Russian origins. He studied at the School of Visual Arts and made his debut as an illustrator and comic artist in 1947 with Irwing Klaw, a publisher of sadomasochistic paraphernalia. He afterwards attended the Cartoonists and Illustrators School.
Proving himself a master of the bondage genre, Stanton created an impressive number of stories, such as 'The Nightmares of Diana', 'Marie's Extraordinary Adventure' and 'Phyllis in Danger'. At the same time he worked for magazine La Revue Érotique, using pseudonyms like Savage and John Bee.
In the early 1960s, he became an independent illustrator, often working for rich clients who ordered his work for private use. His work has been published in numerous European magazines, like Bédé X, Blue and Kiss Comix. Stanton self-published his 'Stantoons' books until his death in 1999. Famous creations include the 'Wonder Woman' parody 'Blunder Broad' in the 1970s with writer Turk Winte, and the 'Princkazons' series.
