Comics Pro Mailbag 9

Today we return to the Comics Pro Mailbag to revisit some of the great fan letters from future comics professionals printed in the letters pages of their favorite titles.

In World’s Finest Comics #146 (December 1964), we find this missive from a 15-year-old Frank Brunner. In a few years, young Mr. Brunner would break into the industry at Warren Publishing doing horror comics, before making a name for himself on Marvel’s Doctor Strange and Howard the Duck in the 1970s.

Given Mr. Brunner’s status as one of Neal Adams’ acolytes (even being a member of his “Crusty Bunkers” inking brigade), I never would have thought Curt Swan to be one of his influences. I guess you never can tell.
