Biography/History

"In February 1958, Horwitz published the first Carter Brown Comics drawn by C.E. Drury. Ranging between 56 and 64 pages and selling for 2s, the comics were adaptations of the popular Carter Brown novels which were also published by Horwitz ... at a time when reprint comics contained 100 pages for 2s, Carter Brown Comics didn't last very long despite being well-illustrated" -- Ryan, John. Panel by panel. Stanmore, N.S.W. : Cassell Australia, 1979. Page 210.
