An all-star issue made up of some of the biggest stars in superhero comics of the 1940’s, in crystal-clear, full-story reprints. Inside of a superb Alex Schomburg cover, you’ll find Dollman, facing the unlikely villainy of…Polka-Dot? A wildly expressive strip drawn by the unsung great John Spranger. Then, it’s that shambling mass of living matter known as The Heap, in a top-flight retelling of his origin, drawn by Ernie Schroeder. The Black Terror faces off against a colorful female vigilante in “The Revenge of Red Ann”; as rendered by Jerry Robinson and Mort Meskin. Then, it’s Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, tackling “The Ghosts of the Lion-Men”, by R. H. Webb and friends. This issue’s first-time guest feature is Yankee Doodle Jones, illustrated by Lou Fine imitator (and Lou’s brother-in-law, in fact) Charles Sultan. Plus, one-page featurettes from Space Mouse and Atom-Age combat, with art by Frank Carin and Dick Ayers. Great encore presentations of storis that originally appeared in Quality, Standard/Nedor, Fiction House, Harry “A” Chesler, Hillman, Charlton and Fago comics. 52 pages, black & white with color covers. Standard comic book format. Printed in 2004.
