He sometimes worked under the name Frank Ray, Giacoia made the rounds to almost every Golden Age publisher, notably working on Flash and Batman stories, he also worked at Timely during this period. In the Silver Age Frank worked on many Jack Kirby pages, particularly in Captain America, and he also notably inked the first appearance of the Punisher in AMS #129.

John Lehti's first published work appeared in pulp magazines in 1935. He also assisted on the 'Secret Agent X-9' comic. Lehti eventually joined the staff of National Periodicals where he worked on features like 'The Crimson Avenger', 'Sgt. O'Malley of the Redcoat Patrol', 'Steve Conrad, Adventurer' and 'Cotton Carver'. In the spring of 1946, Lehti sold his comic strip 'Tommy of the Big Top' to King Features, which ran until 1950 then he returned to DC to draw 'Big Town' and 'Tarzan'. In the early 1950s, Lehti switched to Western, where he illustrated stories with 'Lassie', 'Tom Corbet, Space Cadet' and 'Flash Gordon'. Lehti also worked on 'Sgt. Rock' and 'The Losers' in the mid 1970s. He retired in the 1980s.
