Michael Riley, 1924/5-2006

The Toronto Star is reporting that Michael Riley, an artist on one of the homegrown Canadian "whites" that became popular among Canadian youth during World War II as American comic books had become a restricted item in 1940, died August 19 at age 81. The article states that Riley was best known for a jungle-queen character named Terena, an obscure-enough feature I'm unable to find any evidence of the character or a comic by that name. After leaving comics, Riley worked for years in commercial art. He is survived by two sons and four grandchildren; he was preceded in death by his wife in 2004.
