Their next angel was Harry "A" Chesler but he was bought out by Ultern Publications, before they in turn were bought out by Centaur Publications. Chesler then went on to package comics for other publishers including for his own imprints.

    The Clock meanwhile was sold off by Ultern to Quality Comics, which published new stories in FEATURE FUNNIES (aka FEATURE COMICS), before moving to CRACK COMICS. But when Centaur took over from Ultern, they also reprinted the old Clock stories from their inventory.
    Great info, Jim, except that the company's name was "Ultem", named after the owners, Ullman & Temerson. See https://www.comics.org/publisher/7631/ for more.

    Well that makes sense. Big OOPS on my part. I should just copy and paste, rather than relying on my poor ability to read from computer screens. For the longest time I thought Stephen Amell was Stephen Arnell. Maybe if screen fonts were in Times New Roman rather than Arial, I wouldn't have this problem.

    Charlton Comics, who were publishing quite a bit of material by 1955.

    I wish Marvel would do something with it since they own it now, bu the few times they did do anything it was just so different it might as well have been a new thing.

    I almost quit reading comics all together when things fell apart there.

    I have to wonder when Disney will turn their attention to some of these properties in Crossgen they own. The company owns the characters. Ruse would make a good TV series.

    CrossGen had such great promise as a competing publisher but its CEO made bad business decisions that bankrupted CrossGen. I hope Disney will be better management than the CEO.

    Something like Meridian is custom made for a big budget Disney movie. Teenage heroine, flying airship, floating cities, sky pirates, ect. It just screams Disney movie.

    Especially since they have Disney Plus now and it’s the perfect platform for smaller projects.

    And if they make a movie out of Sojourn, they can use the actual actors and celebrities who appeared in the series, as traced by Greg Land!

    They'd have to have three actors for each character and switch actors between each shot
