My Letter from Kurt Schaffenberger

I have already told you back here that I commissioned the great artist Kurt Schaffenberger to draw a full-page Captain Marvel for me. But I never did share with you the very polite note he sent me before he did the drawing. The time for that sharing has come.

Mr. Schaffenberger began his career drawing Captain Marvel for Fawcett Comics as the Golden Age was drawing to a close, and then he went on to draw Lois Lane for DC Comics for many more years than he was associated with the good Captain. DC revived CM in Shazam! in late1972 and, before long, Mr. S was back drawing Captain Marvel for the first time in twenty years. Below is the wonderful page that Kurt Schaffenberger drew for me.
