    $29.95

    Men of Mystery #89 is now available!! Headlined by actual Golden Age adventues of frontline star features from the era (in never previously reprinted stories, of course) including DOLLMAN, AIRBOY, COMMANDO YANK, GREEN MASK, SPY SMASHER, CAPTAIN FREEDOM, SHOCK GIBSON and NEON the UNKNOWN!! Other highlights of this issue include early work from the soon-to-be star artist Mac Raboy on an adventure of Fawcett Comics’ Dr. VOODOO. Raboy would later make his mark on CAPTAIN MARVEL Jr; GREEN LAMA and a long run on the FLASH GORDON newspaper strip, but here you’ll see an excellent example of his early work. One of the most obscure and esoteric, almost legendary comic books of the early 1940’s is the one-shot produced by the Lloyd Jaquet Studio, GREEN GIANT Comics. MOM #89 will present the one and ONLY appearance of a strange costumed superhero from that book known as The MASTER MYSTIC!! We guarantee you’ve never seen THIS one before!! And every issue of MOM we try to introduce at least a few characters from the 1940’s we’ve NEVER reprinted before, and this issue will is no exception, with early Quality Comics stars from Hit Comics; HERCULES and The RED BEE, AND from Cat-Man Comics, BLACKOUT!! Of course, there’s be a lot more, like the further adventures of Dell’s bizarre PHANTASMO, whose saga we started in MOM #88; Harvey Comics’ champions The SPIRIT of ’76 and the GIRL COMMANDOS, Magazine Enterprixes’ The DURANGO KID, and others!! Featuring art by Mac Raboy, Bob Powell, Carl Pfeufer, Ernie Schroeder, Bob Fujitani, Arturo Cazeneuve, Elmer Stoner, Mac Raboy, Victor Pazmino, Joe Certa, Jill Elgin and more. It’s another 140-page, saddle-stitched blockbuster of full-story vintage reprints in black and white, at regular comic book size with a full-color cover, all for $29.95
