Number 1958: When Plastic Man stretched out into his own title
“The Killing of Snoopy Hawks” is the title assigned years later (for the 1998 DC Archive Edition #4?) to the untitled lead story by the Grand Comics Database. It is credited to writer Joe Millard, with art by Jack Cole. Cole didn’t sign the story. I am never sure how much Cole was assisted on the drawing by others, but I believe he had help.
I also believe Plastic Man is one of the great creations of the Golden Age, and Jack Cole one of the greatest cartoonists of the forties and fifties. With Plastic Man Cole put the “comic” in comic book. l have shown several Plastic Man stories here.You can check them out by typing Plastic Man in the search engine at the upper left of this page.
