By the time that Prize Publications began their five issue run of Charlie Chan in June 1948, Sydney Toler was firmly established as the popular film character, having replaced Warner Oland onscreen a decade earlier.
Prize comics adaptation typically mimicked Toler in appearance, and after watching both men in action in early Chan roles last night on TCM, I've gotta say that I approve. I've probably seen more of Toler's Chan appearances than Oland's, but even though both men are appealing as the Chinese-American detective, Toler is my favorite!
The artwork on the first series was provided by DC's silver age great, Carmine Infantino, so I may have to see if I can find one of these gems at the upcoming Heroes Convention.
Charlie Chan also appeared in other comics adaptations: Charlton released four issues in 1955, DC released six issues of "The New Adventures of Charlie Chan" in 1958 and Dell published two issues in 1965. In the 1970's, there was also a brief Gold Key series adapting the Hanna-Barbera animated show, The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan.
