From ARCHIE COMICS # 2, here's a fun look at Editor Harry Shorten. I wrote the piece on Shorten for Craig Yoe's coffee table ARCHIE history a few years ago. He not only midwifed the Riverdale redhead but also, 2 decades later, he decided to have his own paperback publishing company start producing comic books...and that was the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS.
This must have been before he and his MLJ colleague Al Fagaly started the newspaper strip "There Oughta Be a Law."ReplyDelete
