« I’m going door to door to make you this incredible offer! »

Surprise! Happy birthday to Lois Lane artist supreme Kurt Schaffenberger (December 15, 1920 – January 24, 2002), here working under the alias of Lou Wahl, (he was also Jay Kafka, which would have been fitting here!) a popular and entertaining practice at ACG and Marvel. The DC brass were presumably *not* amused by these moonlighting shenanigans. I’m looking at you, “Adam Austin”, “Mickey DeMeo” (aka Joe Gaudioso), “Jay Gavin” and “George Bell”…

This is Unknown Worlds no. 55 (April-May 1967, ACG), one of the final issues of this fine anthology title.

In case you were wondering: Adam Austin was Gene Colan‘s alias, Mickey DeMeo and Joe Gaudioso were Mike Esposito‘s noms de plume, and Jay Gavin and George Bell were pseudonyms respectively favoured by Werner Roth and George Roussos.
