Reed Crandall worked for Marvel, DC, Eclipse, Harvey, Warren, Treasure Chest, Dell, King & Tower Comics. His early career was in children's books and extensively in Golden Age Comic Books (EC Comics, Captain America, Blackhawk & Doll Man.) 

I remember Reed, during the Silver Age, most fondly for his work on Creepy, Eerie & Dynamo. He also worked on Blazing Combat, Flash Gordon & Treasure Chest

Crandall was a fantastic comic book artist, loved his use of shadowing. He drew comics from 1939 to 1973, with his last story, "This Graveyard is Not Deserted," published in Creepy #54.

Reed Crandall was referenced in Michael Chabon's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. The fictional character Joe Kavalier refers to Crandall as the "top" comic-book artist of his era
