Excellent. Here's Big Joe's take on IW...from 'The Comic Book Makers' by Joe Simon.

Anyone who thinks there was any glory or beauty in the creation of comics during there first thirty years should read articles like this. It was a grimy dog eat dog business and only a very few people (usually the publishers) made any money and certainly with few exceptions (Bob Kane) did the creators get more than crumbs. Even Eisner who had maintained his own copyrights and had a newspaper supplement left to do something more lucrative for the government (PS magazine!)

One can only imagine the desperation of the guys who didn't own anything when the industry collapsed and they needed to find work outside what had been if not well paying at least steady paychecks.
