Sangor Shop History

1937 Ben Sangor and Richard Hughes launch a syndicated comic strip package which mostly fails. (Syndicated Features).

1939 Ned Pines begins publishing comic books with Best Comics reprinting Sangor's comic strips.

1940 Richard Hughes is packaging, editing and writing superhero comics for Ned Pines using art supplied by Sangor.

1941 Jay Morton opens a shop in Florida using moonlighting Fleisher Bros Animators to produce comic book artwork for Ben Sangor. Sangor in turn sells the artwork to his son-in-law Ned Pines.

1942 Pines begins funny animal line with Coo Coo Comics and Goofy Comics. Richard Hughes creates Supermouse with Milt Stein.

Early 1943- Paramount moves the Fleisher (now Famous) Studios back to New York.  Jim Davis instead moves back to California and sets up a shop of moonlighting cartoonists to supply Sangor with artwork.

Oct 1943 Sangor begins publishing his own line of comics with Ha-Ha and Giggle.  This line eventually becomes the American Comics Group Sangor uses material from Davis's West Coast shop along with Richard Hughes's 45 West 45th Street Shop.

1944- DC Comics begins buying funny animal art from Sangor. Hughes becomes editor at Creston (American Comics Group).

1945- DC starts Real Screen Comics using Columbia Cartoon characters.  All the art except the covers  is supplied by Jim Davis and the West Coast Sangor cartoonists.

1947 Ned Pines takes his art in-house. Joseph Greene becomes his editor.

1948 Sangor decides to stop supplying artwork to DC and use his shop only for the ACG titles.  Jim Davis and Hubie Karp leave Sangor to continue doing Fox and Crow directly for DC.

1951 Pines cancels Coo Coo Comics.

1953 Pines cancels Goofy Comics.

1955 ACG cancels Ha Ha and Giggle, ending the last gasp of the Sangor humor shop.  Davis continues doing Fox and Crow well into the 1960's at DC.  Pines cancels Supermouse.
