Philomel-Chic Stone-1954

Yesterday we showed MIGHTY MOUSE. Perhaps the most successful MIGHTY MOUSE knock-off was ATOMIC MOUSE. You'll find him as an essential part of today's offering, PHILOMEL. This was a back-up feature in TV TEENS, an early fifties title featuring Riverdale knock-offs, OZZIE AND BABS. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this comic--and PHLOMEL in particular--is that the art was done by Chic Stone who went on to be known for his thickly outlined inks over Jack Kirby on early FF and THOR stories and many years later lighted at Archie Comics long enough to return to his roots...only now on the real thing.
