Woolfolk Records 1953/09

Adventure 197 cover

These scripts sold to DC, Orbit, and Lev Gleason.

One of the romance stories and the Buster Crabbe I couldn't track down. UPDATE: I found the Prescription for Happiness long after posting. The Buster Crabbe I found after darkmark suggested "Case of the Radioactive Tiger," but Woolfolk notes writing that one next month.

In addition to listing his comic book scripts in the records;book, William Woolfolk has been noting progress on writing his first novel, and this month he finishes it. The Naked Hunter will be published as a paperback original by Popular Library in 1954.

  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. I changed my mind. The Buster Crabbe story is "Strange Case of the Radioactive Tiger" in BUSTER CRABBE #3. The artist is Mort Leav and the dialogue contains Woolfolk's trademark "Good Glory!" We have a match.

  3. Woolfolk will write "Radioactive Tiger" in October. I just now found "Jungle of Death" in looking to recheck "Tiger," since Comic Book Plus has BC #2 entered as #3 and vice versa.
