Orlando kept Oksner and Blaisdell for some stories, but did not use Drake. He went to Howie Post for scripts. The credits pasted onto '80s reprints for Drake are very likely sheer guesswork rather than from the records.
The inker on the Sekowsky story could be Tex Blaisdell, but Stanley's face throughout looks to be by a different hand. Why is there a comma in the title? Ask the Rolling Stones.

Martin, My first impression on seeing the splash to "I'm Painting the town, Red!" was "Howie Post inks?" Since he was scripting perhaps he doubled as inker.ReplyDelete
The thought did pass my mind, too, Nick, but I didn't put it in the post because, as with you, it was just an impression.ReplyDelete
