Charlton was getting the benefit of all the artists out of work when EC gave up, Marvel imploded down to ten titles, and the new Comics Code caused so many companies to throw in the towel. But upstart Charlton was in their heyday, with all-star Steve Ditko churning out brilliant work, before he'd make the move to Marvel. And young Dick Giordano is beginning his career with superior work.
