He was one of the best editors I ever worked with, partly because he thought my work was great.

My dealings with Ben Sangor only concerned "animal comics," and my relationship with Dick was more or less adversarial.

In the early years of the comic book industry, artistic credit on stories was usually non-existent, erratic, or even misleading because of the use of personal or house pseudonyms. Many artists, writers, and editors preferred this obscurity because comic books, like the pulp magazines, were considered by many adults to be the work of hacks, created exclusively for children. In addition, no one was sure that comics were not simply another passing fad in an industry where new magazines appeared and disappeared almost every week.
Charles Biro and Bob Wood of Lev Gleason Publishing were among the first to step out of the shadows. They understood the marketing value of turning their names into company trademarks.
