Quality Colanonscopy

Friday Comic Book Day.

I have shown some of the early stories Gene Coan did for companies such as Quality in the late forties and early fifties, but more and more keep popping up. Thankfully, most of them are entered into the Grand Comic Book Data Base as well, which is starting to show how much Colan drew in these few years. He alsways was prolific, but I had the impression that it was something that grew during the fifties. Now it seems, ir was there from the start. Of course, here he was not inking his own work, which he started doing at Atlas (Marvel). During the fifties he developed his own style of inking which in my opinion was better than anything ever did on him drom the sixties onwards.
