Golden Age Men of Mystery 13
Sporting a never-before-printed cover of Magazine Enterprises’ The Avenger by Dick Ayers, M. E.’s cold-war crimefighter is in the lead spot with a reprint of “Death Has Three Faces” from The Avenger #1,with art by Dick Ayers. Another ’50’s favorite returns, Sterling’s Captain Flash, by Mike Sekowsky in “Man Or Myth”, from Captain Flash #4. Mr. Scarlet solves “The Case Of The Impregnasble Vault”, drawn by Carl Pfeufer, for Fawcett Comics’ Wow #50, and Street and Smith’s Rex King, Adventurer teams up with his pet panther Kato to keep the African jungles crime-free in an adventure drawn by Al Plastino for Super Magician #2, circa 1941. Then, one of the most memorable clashes of the Golden Age is revisited as we see New Friday’s Daredevil Vs. The Claw, in a line-for-line recreation of Jack Cole’s masterpiece, executed by comics legend C.C. Beck. Also, part 2 of the interview with Quality Comics great Chuck Cuidera, and The Collector’s Corner by former Mad Magazine editor, Jerry DeFuccio. Another fat volume chock full of vintage comics action and fun from the 1940’s and ’50’s. Color cover, interiors are black and white with graytones. 52-page standard comic book format. Printed in 1999.
