We just added a page about my independent comic book company, Evolution Comics.



Below is a recreation I did from a story I wrote for Harvey Comics' Richie Rich Dollars and Cents #97. Originally pencilled by Howard Bender after my script and lay-outs.

I wrote several stories for Harvey comics about the poor little rich kid. Very weird to think of a kid having a hang glider made out of thousand dollar bills and getting allergies to new bills. When Richie sneezes, he sez: “Cash-oo!” A lot of different people worked on Richie over the years including Ernie Colon and Howard Bender, but I was most interested when I found out a lot of women inked the comics from their houses. The suburban housewife picks up her pages on Monday and turns ‘em in a week later all inked and pencils erased, ready for the printer. Editor Sheldon Mayer said a lot of wimmin made the color guides for the printers of comics in the 40’s. Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon has some great bits about a lady cartoonist doing her Romance comic books, and I’d suggest you read it if you haven’t already, as it’s a great book.
