Comics Pro Mailbag 4

In today’s installment of Comics Pro Mailbag, we find future Wonder Woman editor Marv Wolfman taking Wonder Woman’s then-editor Robert Kanigher to task for his attempts to emulate the style the book was known for during the Golden Age. In the process, young Mr. Wolfman levels some pretty harsh criticism on Wonder Woman’s original artist, Harry G. Peter.

The following appeared in “Wonder Woman’s Readers Write” in Wonder Woman #168 (February 1967).

One can only wonder what Robert Kanigher thought of Mr. Wolfman’s decisions during his brief run on the book some fifteen years later.

Comics Pro Mailbag 3

It’s time for another installment of Comics Pro Mailbag, in which we scour old letters pages in search of missives from future comics professionals.

Today, we hear once again from comics-colorist-to-be Irene Vartanoff. This letter appeared in “Green Lantern’s Mail Chute” in the pages of Green Lantern #50 (January 1967).

Clearly, the summer of 1966 was a prolific letter-writing time for young Ms. Vartanoff, as we saw in our last installment. Editor Julius Schwartz obviously enjoyed her erudite correspondence!
