Harry "A" Chesler Comics (1937-1948)
Although mostly remembered for the books he published in the early and mid 1940s, the Chesler comic book titles may be broken down into three periods. In the early period of 1937-1939, they produced “funny books” that focused more on humor strips, adventure and western stories. In the middle or pre-WWII years he joined the other publishers in the super-hero wave, with titles such as Dynamic Comics, Yankee Comics, Scoop Comics and Punch Comics, which were short-lived in their first incarnation. The final period was the resurrection of these titles that sported the uniquely macabre covers of Gus Ricca as well as those drawn by Fran Smith and George Tuska. The Chesler string of comic titles ran out of steam as 1947 drew to a close.
