Danny Crespi and Lenny Grow. These two gentlemen were in charge of the flow of work to all freelancers. Very different from the Editor System still in place. At this time, March of 1979, Jim Shooter was the Editor in Chief and then there was a host of assistant editors. None of whom assigned work. It was all up to Lenny and Danny. These guys had been freelancers and professionals in and around comics for decades. Soon, the system was changed into the Editor and Assistant Editor system employed today, wherein the Editor decides what freelancer gets the assignment. Danny was from old Marvel-- back when it was known as Timely. Lenny came from publishing and pretty much knew everything about an art department, publishing and the technical side of printing. (AND he gave me my first Bullpen job!)
