Dotty in "On the Spot" (Ace; 1948)

Al Hartley had barely begun his commercial art career when WWII began, after which he enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps and flew 20 missions as a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber pilot in Europe. Upon his return he produced a lot of fun, lovely artwork for Ned Pines imprints [Better; Standard; Nedor] and also drew features for Ace, Timely, Atlas, Marvel, Archie and eventually he helped launch the Spire Christian Comics line. “On the Spot” is from Dotty #36 (Sept.1948); originally published by Ace Comics and illustrated by Al Hartley. The Catacombs acknowledges "Comic Book Plus" as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belongs to the original publishers and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
