Vincent Fago in Giggle Comics

Here comes a story from Giggle Comics No. 19 (May, 1945) with artwork by Vincenzo Francisco Gennaro Di Fago (more popularly known as Vincent Fago). Fago's story is largely forgotten today but very fascinating. One of many interesting aspects of Fago's story is his close friendship with Stan Lee during the war years (1940s). During WWII, Fago took over the editing desk at Timely Comics (predecessor of Marvel) while Mr. Lee entered the Armed Services. And, as can be seen below, Fago also drew some beautiful comic pages into the bargain.
