From Yvonne Craig, we move to Chase Craig, courtesy of a wonderful piece by Mark Evanier.
Chase Craig was a long-time editor at Western Publishing, who gave us the Dell and Gold Key Comics when they were at their best.
He was Carl Barks’ editor – and has had his effect on the comic books we love up to and including the primary content of this current IDW issue!
Mark Evanier notes that 2015 would have been Chase Craig’s 105 th birthday! It’s mind-blowing to even consider that many of the creators of classic comic book material would be near or over the century mark at this point in time. But, Carl Barks would be 114, were he around today.
Evanier also mentions stories he wrote for the Disney Studio Program very early in his career – one of which became my first dialogue (and title) assignment for a Disney comic book publisher! At the time, I didn’t even know it was one of his until I showed it to him at a New York Comic Con, some years ago.
