A stroll down Memory Lane with the boys from the Bullpen:
left to right, the top row includes Joe Letterese, Morrie Kuramoto,
Dan Crespi, Sal Contrera, Herb Cooper, Artie Simek,
Vince Madafferi, Carl Burgos, Stan Starkman, Neva Del Vecchio
and Chris Rule. Bottom row: Sol Brodsky, Ray Holloway and
Stan Goldberg. Whew!
Marvel Bullpen photo was published in FOOM #17, March 1977; links to Grand Comics Database (GCD), Todd Klein (TK) and Who’s Who of American Comic Books 1928–1999 (WW).
Top row, left to right: Joe Letterese* (Comic Vine photo GCD TK WW), Morrie Kuramoto* (GCD WW) Dan Crespi (GCD WW) Sal Contrera (GCD) Herb Cooper* (GCD WW) Artie Simek* (GCD WW) Vince Madafferi** (WW), Carl Burgos (GCD WW) Stan Starkman* (GCD TK WW), Neva Del Vecchio, and Chris Rule (GCD WW Wikipedia).
** Who’s Who listing suggests a fake signature, but the photo proves Madafferi was for real. The Social Security Death Index has someone named Vincent D. Madafferi who was born May 30, 1929 and died April 20, 2006.
