Pure Imagination (that's Greg Theakston's company) recently re-published what was marketed (in 1950) as one of the very earliest "Graphic Novels," an action/drama/romance thing called "Four Frightened Women." It's what you'd expect, and Theakston savages the artwork in his intro piece, but it's really very interesting for its historical significance. Recommended (by me) for anyone who's into keeping the knowlede of that kind of history alive, as it pre-dates Simon & Kirby's more polished endeavors in a similar vein by at least a few years.
"The trouble with being a ghost writer or artist is that you must remain anonymous without credit.
If one wants the credit, one has to cease being a ghost and become a leader or innovator."
