Daydreams That Became a Nightmare-Lee Elias-1967

Lee Elias had been one of the early comics artists to come out of the Caniff "school" of comic art. By this point in his prolific career, he had developed a more recognizable and unique style of his own. In later years, he would, himself, become a teacher at the KUBERT school!

Archie-Dan DeCarlo-1985

Perhaps the ultimate Bronze Age Archie story, this one has the whole gang meeting up with Richard Goldwater, Michael Silberkleit, Vic Gorelick, and all the rest of the artists and writers and colorists and even secretaries at Archie. There's even a cameo by then-retired John Goldwater and Louis Silberkleit.

Hopalong with Hopalong Cassidy-1947

An unusual Hoppy-related feature. well, barely Hoppy related. GCD shows question marks for the artist but I see what looks like "del" signed at lower right above. Anyone?
