"...there were quite a few issues of Millie the Model and other teen comics signed by Sol Brodsky or 'Solly B.'

At the time, Stan was doing occasional work for the Archie Comics people, and they didn't like to see their artists drawing in that style for other publishers. So when Stan drew teen comics for Marvel, they put Brodsky's name on them in the hope that the Archie editors wouldn't know it was him".
