Alfred Buescher was the art director at Central Press. Between 1951 and 1957 he drew the comic strip 'Joe & Judy'. He was also the artist of the seasonal comic strip 'Eski'. The strip, written by former 'Brick Bradford' author William Ritt, appeared each December from 1951 to 1960.
Buescher and Ritt have also cooperated on a comic called 'The Story of Stalin' for King Features. The original story from 1939, drawn by Clifton Crittenden, was updated by Buescher in 1952 to Stalin's conjectured death, and was ready for use when the Soviet dictator would pass away. It is unknown if the comic was ever published.
