"here's some of the images I was sent from Paul Bonanno
that he drew for Red Circle Comics before John Carbonaro was
sent packing in favor of Rich Buckler."
"Under my brief editorialship, I changed his name to
Captain Strong to differ the Simon and Kirby revamp from the
original Shield. As proof, look at Mighty Crusaders #1 which I
edited and got paid for though Archie put Buckler's name on it.
Buckler never seemed to remember to call him by the new name and
probably confused everyone. Also Chris Adams and Charlie Boatner
were previously a Thunder Agent writers (one of them wrote that
story, I think Chris) and Paul Bonanno was my pick of
artist as I got him to work on my Thunder Agents as well. Also
this would explain why this short story never made it into the
Red Circle books. I'm sure Archie has the whole inked story in a
file somewhere. Archie Comics insisted on using
D'agastino(sic)as inker on this story. Paul was upset when a
beautiful (although small) rendering of Capt. Strong partially
submerged was inked. The lower half of the face was replaced
with simple lines for waves
