He assisted Lou Fine, Gill Fox and Bob Fujitani before working on such notable features as Airboy, Uncle Sam and Daredevil (the original pre-Marvel character). During the 1950s he did an enormous amount of humor, horror and western anthology work, primarily for Marvel (Atlas) Comics.He later worked on Marvel’s black and white horror magazines such as Tales of the Zombie, Monsters Unleashed, and Dracula Lives. His last published comic book work was Fantastic Adventures #3 (Oct. 1987) where he did the humorous “The Score Board Kid” written by former Mad editor Jerry DeFuccio. In addition to working on Joe Palooka and Rex Morgan — both highly visible features in their time – Tony also drew Mickey Finn during its waning years.
