Wildcat-Joe Gallagher-1945


When I first encountered Wildcat, he was being drawn to look as much like Batman as possible. He also teamed with Batman endlessly in B&B which flummoxed young me because Wildcat was supposedly on Earth TWO! Well, here he is in his glory days, complete with requisite goofy sidekick that all the AA characters (and some of the DC ones, too) had!

Jughead-1965


Jughead works well as Sad Sack in this, one of the odder Jughead stories out of a series that prides itself on odd stories.

Ivy and Mervin-Mike Roy-1953


When I was growing up I used to think Mike Roy was the same as Mike Royer! Nope. Roy had a long and successful career before Royer even entered the field.

Here's another Krigstein attempt at fitting in before he just let his creative style run wild with innovations.
