Patsy and Hedy #1-110 (Feb. 1952 -Feb. 1967), Patsy and Hedy Annual #1 (1963), A Date With Patsy #1 (Sep. 1957).

Patsy and Hedy #32Al Hartley (October 25, 1921, Kearny, New Jersey, United States–May 27, 2003, Fort Myers, Florida) was an American comic book writer-artist known for his work on Archie Comics, Atlas Comics, and many Christian comics. He received an Inkpot Award at the 1980 San Diego Comic-Con.

Hartley studied at the Art Students League of New York before serving as a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber pilot in Europe during World War II. On his return, he became a commercial artist while beginning to freelance for comic books. He wrote and drew the backup feature "Roger Dodger" Exciting Comics #51-67 (Sept. 1946 - May 1949), from pulp magazine publisher Ned Pines' mix'n'match Better Publications /Nedor/Standard Publishing. Hartley also did humour one- and two-pagers for that company's America's Best Comics #20-28 (Dec. 1946 - Nov. 1948), "Zippie" in The Fighting Yank, and pieces for Startling Comics and Wonder Comics.

During this time he also did the backup features "Debbie" and "Teen Tales" in Michel Publications' Cookie, The Funniest Kid in Town; and "Peg" for ACG's The Kilroys. As well his worked appeared in the titles All Romances, Dotty, Dotty and Her Boyfriends, and Vicky for A. A. Wyn, Inc.'s Ace Comics.

Hartley hit his stride, however, at Atlas, where he worked across a gaggle of genres and made his mark with a more than decade-long stint on the Patsy Walker teen-girl titles. More naturalistic in his rendering than such fellow Atlas cartoonists as Dan DeCarlo, Hartley took over the Patsy Walker franchise from writer-artist Al Jaffee, who'd left to become one of Mad magazine's top talents.Al Hartley

With writer-editor Stan Lee, Hartley drew the redheaded high schooler's lightly comic adventures in her namesake series (which ran through 1964) and in its spin-offs, Patsy and Hedy (which ran through 1967) and the single-issue A Date with Patsy (Sept. 1957). Well into the Marvel Age, Hartley also drew the "Special Queen Size Annual," Patsy Walker's Fashion Parade #1 (1966). Walker would be integrated into Marvel Universe continuity in the 1970s as the supernatural super heroine Hellcat, married to Daimon Hellstrom, the "Son of Satan", long after Hartley had left the character.

Also for Atlas, Hartley co-created Leopard Girl with writer Don Rico in Jungle Action, and drew such features as "The Black Rider" in Wild Western, and "Cliff Mason, White Hunter" in Jungle Tales. Hartley drew as well for the horror/suspense titles Mystic, Spellbound, Strange Tales, Adventures Into Terror, and Mystery Tales, among many other Atlas books.Patsy and Hedy #2

For Marvel in the 1960s, Hartley drew a single superhero comic: an episode of the Norse god superhero "Thor" in Journey into Mystery #90. He dabbled in Marvel scripting on two stories: the "Iron Man" feature in Tales of Suspense #68 (Aug. 1965), and the last "Giant-Man" feature, in Tales to Astonish #69 (July 1965).

Among Marvel miscellanea, Hartley drew the 1961-63 Marvel Age series Linda Carter, Student Nurse, which began as a humour comic then became a romance with issue #2. (Although never explicitly a sequel, Marvel published Night Nurse, starring Linda Carter, from 1972-73.) After fellow Atlas artist Joe Maneely was killed in an accident in 1958, Hartley succeeded him on writer Stan Lee's syndicated comic strip Mrs. Lyon's Cubs. Hartley had done a short-lived gag-panel cartoon, Suburbia, the year before.

In 1967 he began writing and drawing for Archie Comics, infusing some of the stories with his Christian beliefs. He began collaboration with the publisher Fleming H. Revel, who assigned him to do comics adaptations of religious stories like 'The Cross and the Switchblade', 'God's Smuggler' and 'The Hiding Place'. His religious output for Archie also increased with the launch of the Spire Christian Comics series. He co-created new titles as Archie's One Way and Archie's Love Scene. In all, he did somewhere around 60 Christian comics, including at least 19 Archie titles, 6 Bible story adaptations, 12 biographical adaptations, 4 other book or movie Adaptations, and 9 children's Christian comics. Hartley also illustrated Christian children's books in the 1980s, He wrote a 1977 memoir, Come Meet My Friend! (New Life Ventures).
