About the author:
Though never as popular as DC, Marvel or even Archie, Charlton Comics had a long run from 1944 to 1985 and also produced a line of successful publications like Hit Parader. They didn't spawn the superhero icons other publishers did but released a variety of titles that have become beloved by millions. They were fortunate to employ an array of legendary writers and artists who displayed a creative passion in the Charlton titles more than with other publishers, where they received more pay and fame.
The Charlton Arrow #6
Paul Kupperberg, Roger McKenzie, Michael Jan Friedman, Joe Gill, Ron Fortier, Steven Thompson, Daniel Wilson
John Severin, Caio Cacau, Jose Delbo, P. D. Angel Gabriele, Gary Kato, Dan Reed, Darren Goodhart, Ben Torres
When Charlton closed shop, they sold off most of their properties, with many left to languish in limbo. If anything, appreciation of their comics has grown over the years, with fan publications dedicated to their memory. THE CHARLTON ARROW is the fruits of those labors and we hope it properly honors the Charlton legacy!
