Weird Comics History Podcast ep. 7 - The History of Charlton Comics Part 1

This week Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) explore the little-known history of Charlton Comics, and explain why that information is little-known! First, they talk about the founders of Charlton, including their salacious beginnings and business philosophy. Then Chris and Reggie tell all about the working conditions at Charlton, which were infamously hysterical. Finally, we take a look at some of Charlton's most seminal creators, some of whom would have a long-lasting and profound impact on comics history! It's a great story that won't cost you anything, which is exactly how Charlton's owners would have wanted it.
