More on Arnold Drake

1

Mark Evanier has a longer, touching remembrance of writer Arnold Drake who passed away on Monday:

Arnold was one of my favorite comic book writers before I knew who he was…even before I knew that the guy who wrote those Tommy Tomorrow stories I thought were so great was the same guy who’d written all those Challengers of the Unknown comics I liked so much. There were no credits then and when I later did learn who’d written what, I could see the connection. Arnold’s writing was a little wittier, a little sharper than most of the others then scripting books by the tonweight for DC. He seemed to presuppose a little more intelligence on the part of the readers. He didn’t explain everything four times the way some of the other writers did. He expected us to “get it.”
