Friday Comic Book Day.
Before John Severin and Bill Elder worked for EC through their pal Harvey Kurtzman, they learned their craft on a lot of stories for several publishers and titles. They did western stories for Prize Comica Westerns, some crime and love stories for Jack Kirby and Joe Simon's titles at Prize and many odd jobs ibetween. Together (Severin on pencils and Elder on inks) they did sone of their best naterial for Standard and none as good as the many stories and covers they did for Standard. The work they did for Real Life particulary stands out as some of the best of their early career.
