The Cavalier, by Sam Cooper

Sam Cooper worked as a comic book artist during the 1940s and 1950s. In the early stages of his career he worked on 'Jack Frost' and 'Phantom Reporter' for Timely, and on several features for MLJ (Archie Publications), including 'Bentley of Scotland Yard', 'Black Jack', 'The Black Hood', 'Captain Flag', 'Red Reagan' and 'Doc Strong'. Cooper was most notably the co-creator of 'Dr Justice' (1941), a superhero that emerged from the dead, which was temporarily one of MLJ's biggest stars. Cooper and writer Joe Blair stayed with the character for most of its run.

Cooper then moved over to other companies, working on real life and crime features for Better Publications, 'Rod Ripley' for Holyoke Publications, crime features for D.S. Publishing and Lev Gleason. By the early 1950s he was mainly active as an illustrator of romance stories, which he did for companies like Ace Periodicals, Timely/Atlas, Quality Comics and Harvey Comics. In addition, he did various features for Story Comics and ACG's Adventures into the Unknown.
