Comics: A Vanishing Art Form-1963

Here's an interesting article about comic books about 9 years after the Code and the end of the big boom in comics, but also 3 years before Superman hit Broadway and Batmania hit the nation. Interesting how the columnist's memory aaaalmost gets things right. "Red Lantern?" Mixing up Billy and Freddy? Green Arrow in his own title? 

The improbably named Wells A. Twombly was only 27 or 28 when he wrote this. A sports journalist of some renown, he died in 1977 at the age of only 41.
