Walt Feinberg is an illustrator and cartoonist.


Walt Feinberg was noted for his work of fill-in issues in various western titles between the stories of Gil Kane and Alex Toth. Although extremely capable, the slots went unnoticed between the works of great western comic artists.

When Feinberg was hired to illustrate for Tales of the Black Freighter to replace Joe Orlando, he was relatively unknown but he found a chance to shine. He collaborated with write Max Shea until issue #31 when the temperamental writer left.[1]

At some point either in or before October 1985, Feinberg began drawing editorial cartoons for the far-right conspiratorial newspaper New Frontiersman. Editor Hector Godfrey referred to him as "lazy jerk Feinberg" due to his frequent lateness in turning in work on time.[2]
