Someone else was getting into the superhero game with Marvel Comics #1 (uh-oh), but meanwhile...
Sometimes, I don't know what to tell you. Action scenes can lead to accidental awkwardness. I wouldn't read too much into it.
Who would have thought that this issue, with the famous cover of a giant Batman overlooking a haunted castle would actually involve a giant ape? Great cover, but obviously designed before comics creators "cracked" the appeal of gorilla covers.
This strip set in the wilds of Canada (it's always the "wilds", when it's Canada) started in issue #39 with O'Malley joining the RCMP as a constable. Given the frankly racist way the natives and metis are represented, I don't think O'Malley would make one Constable Benton Fraser proud.
As if in answer to my reaction to yet another issue of Smash Comics without a Quality hero still remembered today. Just how long do I have to wait?!
(The answer is 10 more issues, but only if you count Magno the Miracle Man. Oh you don't? Well, maybe I'm looking in the wrong Quality comic... Clues!)
