Scratchy And Iffy

Saturday Leftover Day.

After doing funny animal comics for DC for a couple of yeras, Howard (Howie) Post tried his hand at a more realistic Syle for a shortlived run of Rodei=o Rick in Western Comics. After that, he got some funny teen work at Atlas and it wasn't before long he was doing crime and horror stories for them as as well. This time, his realistic style was more scratchy and less.. well, realistic. When I wrote my article on the Mad magazine imitations 0f 1954, I concluded that Post may have written all of his own material for Crazy, Wild and Riot. I think the same may be true of his horror stories.
