One Panel #705: ouY erA demooD!

From Merlin the Magician: "The U-Boat" by Fred Guardineer, National Comics #26 (November 1942)

Quality Comics' Merlin had the exact same shtick as National's (DC's) Zatata, but the latter didn't get litigious about this one. The Hitler monster from the splash panel doesn't appear in the story, but is symbolic of Germany, which Merlin fights. He doesn't take Nazis prisoner either - he animates a noose at some point and strangles a soldier. Good ol' Golden Age violence.
