Charlton printed their comics on - cereal box presses! And they also printed Porn, out the back door. Which supports the consistent murmur of Mob ties.
NATURALISTIC! UNCANNY! MARVELOUS!

I don't think that's true with Ditko. His sixties art for them is very detailed. His artwork got looser later, but that was across the board. It was true with his DC and Marvel art as well. That often happens with artists as they get older. I think Sutton's more cartoony Charlton art is better than his bland DC art. I like Jim Aparo's lighter style better over there, too, although he was never bland like Sutton. I'm sure they cut the rates for everyone, but the script rates seemed to get it worse. Pre code it doesn't look like practically everything was written by Joe Gill. A lot of the artists remained. The rates were probably already pretty low as Charlton artists didn't freelance much even pre code
By the way, DC was paying in the late fifties ten dollars a page for scripts. So one fourth of that would be...ooh!

Looks like typical Steve Ditko circa 1960's to me. He is pencils and inks on Blue Beetle. Captain Atom has pencils only, although the inker complements his style.
Early Jim Aparo vesrus mature Aparo. I prefer the more laid back, half cartoony-half illustrative feel of his early work which is still noticeable in his earliest DC work. It looks like he was drawing Commissioner Gordon before he was drawing him.
