Don Komisarow is less well-known but he was a well-known newspaper illustrator circa 1936-1939 and had a single-panel called “All For Lovely Woman’s Sake” and in 1954 was drawing a religious comic strip re-telling the tales of Noah and Jacob which was distributed by King Features.
Lawrence Lariar won the Red Badge Mystery Prize in 1944 for a book entitled “The Man with the Lumpy Nose” published by Dodd, Mead & Co. A reviewer said of that book:
“The man with the grotesque proboscis is a bird of ill omen, where he appears evil follows, usually murder. When his shadow falls on the great Earl Chance, a magazine editor almost any member of the Comic arts club could have cheerfully murdered, and wins him the attention of Homer Bull, short, fat bundle of shrewdness, murder comes home to roost. Lariar has fashioned quite a neat plot, but best feature of the yarn is its picture of the Bohemian world of the comic strip artist.”
