This Week in Astrology

Creig Flessel drew This Week in Astrology after leaving David Crane.  He signed the strip with the pen name "Valentine."  Flessel started drawing comic books in 1935, and drew The Sandman golden age character.  Afterwards he became the longest tenured artist at Johnstone and Cushing (see Hogan's Alley #10) and was responsible for many of its longest-running cartoon ads.  He also did Boy's Life covers, textbooks, worked on the comic strips Dixie Dugan, Li'l Abner, and Friday Foster, and was responsible for drawing the David Crane comic strip until its demise.
