Ms. Tree, by Terry Beatty
Ms. Tree - Death do us part ch. 5 (1983)

Terry Beatty, who is from Iowa, teamed up with writer Max Allen Collins in 1979 to create 'The Comics Page', a weekly syndicated comics page of jokes, activities and puzzle-comic, starring private eye 'Mike Mist'. The feature didn't last long, but the character continued its career in issues of Mystery Magazine and as a back-up feature in the 'E-Man' comic book. Beatty worked with Collins on several other projects, including the 'Mrs Tree' comic book (1981), which also featured 'Mike Mist'. They then cooperated on the fourt-part mini-series 'Wild Dog', published by DC, and revived Pete Morisi's 'Johnny Dynamite' series as a mini-series for Dark Horse.

Beatty has worked regularly as an inker on 'Batman Adventures'. He has also worked on 'Batman Beyond'.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
