Personal Quote:

"Each artist, out of his own interests and imagination, creates his own world in his strip - this is true of Peanuts, Beetle Bailey, Popeye, all good strips. And you accomplish this not by imitating others - you come up with your own idea. To me, The Phantom and Mandrake are very real - much more than the people walking around whom I don't see very much. You have to believe in your own characters. See more »

Trivia:

Was a world traveler, and often wrote his scripts for The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician in a hotel room, far away from his New York home. See more »

Trademark:

Often used the names of his children in the comic strip

Star Sign:

Taurus
