Biography: Personal email exchange with Rick Veitch on Who is Marvin Kilroy?
"On Aug 16, 2020, at 10:49 PM,
'Rick, I was updating the 1963 entries in the grand comic database and noticed that Marvin Kilroy is a pseudonym. After 25+ years, it might be time to let the cat out of the bag.
Since he only worked on issues you worked on, I am guessing you know him quite well...wink, wink, nod, nod. Hope you can help, Ron Sadowski'
