"Although an accomplished artist himself who earned a certificate from the School of Visual Arts (where he met lifelong friend and colleague Angelo Torres), Meglin (as he would have readily admitted) was not in the same league as some of the artists he hung out with in the legendary Fleagle Gang, a group that included Frazetta, Al Williamson, Roy Krenkel, and future Mad contributors Angelo Torres and George Woodbridge." --The Comics Journal
