Woolfolk Records 1953/05

World's Finest 67 cover
A lot has changed since 1947! This month William Woolfolk sold scripts to Orbit and DC.

I have no idea where or if Stinky Slinky (a skunk?) was published, but it was done for a third publisher. Woolfolk coded the scripts with the buyer's initials for awhile (D for DC and R for romance for Orbit, for instance); Stinky Slinky he coded F, so just perhaps it was meant for Fawcett's Funny Animals. Fawcett, of course, dropped their comic book line at this point. UPDATE: Yes, Stinky Slinky (who looks like, I suppose, a wolf) was in Funny Animals—the final Fawcett issue.

Woolfolk's war stories for DC have already been attributed (on the Grand Comics Database, for instance) since Mike Tiefenbacher found them from the other direction: on editor Julius Schwartz's production records of scripts bought for the titles he and Robert Kanigher edited.

"Prescription for Happiness" and "SOS for Love" were series whose installments went untitled. UPDATE: I since found the PFH.
