Men of Mystery 67
Another huge cache of previously-unseen Golden Age gems starring the top costumed crimefighters of the 1940’s!! Quality Comics is well-represented this issue, with THREE great feature-length stories: “A Million-Dollar Corpse” stars the diminutive dynamo, DOLLMAN; as he battles one of his toughest nemesis in a beautifully-rendered story by John Spranger. The Mighty Mite never looked tougher, and girlfriend Martha never looked better!! MANHUNTER joins the fray as he encounters a face from his past- The Ghostmaster, in an excellent tale originally appearing in Police Comics #26. Then, G-man extraordinaire T-MAN finds himself in trouble on a “Mexican Slayride”. Fawcett Comics stars shine as well, with cover star MR. SCARLET in “Portrait of Death”, drawn by Carl Pfeufer from Wow Comics # 46, and Major Midnight “Spikes The Sun-Gun”, with art by Leonard Frank. Standard/Nedor’s top star The BLACK TERROR battles through a spooky untitled adventure from Exciting Comics # 51, and Fiction House’s STAR PIRATE fights through an untitled Planet Comics story drawn by Maurice Whitman. The biggest comic book stars of The Golden Age, reprinted exactly as they originally appeared over half a century ago. 46 pages, black & white with color covers, standard comic book size, saddle-stitched. Printed in 2007.
