89 YEARS AGO TODAY

Mike Esposito was born. After assisting the legendary Hogarth on the Tarzan Newspaper strip he was hired as a penciler by Stan Lee in 1950. He formed a comic company with Ross Andru in 1953 which went bust in 1954 when comics nearly went extinct.
After Kirby saved comics in the Sixties, Esposito's immortality was assured when Lee enlisted him into the Kirby Inker Army.

  1. Sigh, if only the TV Marvel's Agents of Shield had a fraction of this frenetic action and way out machinery.
