Another WHOPPING 64 pages of prime GOLDEN AGE reprints of the highest quality!! A mix of great old favorites and intriguing first- timers this go-around. Among the super-characters making their FIRST appearance ever in MOM in this issue is CAPTAIN FREEDOM, in an untitled story reprinted from SPEED COMICS #24. Captain Freedom was somewhat of an imitation of Timely’s Captain America (one of the better ones) in that he wore a flag-inspired costume, but instead of ONE youthful sidekick (like Cap) Freedom has FIVE of them, collectively known as The Young Defenders. This unnamed tales has Cap Freedom & Co. taking on a mad scientist (named Dr. Deemon) who is cooking up some biological weapons, and it is drawn by Arturo Cazenueve. The next dominoed debutante this ish is The JACK of SPADES, an extremely obscure (but fascinating) superhero who comes to life via an exploding deck of cards!! In this bizarre adventure, he tangles with an entire civilization of winged hawkmen to save an innocent girl. This character is the creative product of Albert & Florence Magarian, and appeared in the odd-sized TOPS COMICS in 1944. Our returning regulars include The DOLLMAN, as drawn by Al Bryant in “Dollman Joins The Underworld
