Cap Thunder of Thunder Island-1941

It's often said that DC should have re-christened Captain Marvel with his originally intended monicker rathe than the name of the old wizard. That would be Captain Thunder...but THIS ancestor of Lloyd Bridges seems to have more or less claimed that.

Mysto, Magician Detective-Leonard Starr-1954

Thought I had run across a new "Son of Mandrake" but no, we had this fella booked here a year ago. Well, here he is again. Leonard Starr is credited but I'll be darned if some faces don't look like Gil Kane faces to me--See the pipesmoker in the bottom center of Page 4.

As promised, here's the infinitely better first version of yesterday's tale.

Bonus: Even better art from one of the masters--Everett Raymond Kinstler!

Super Goof-1973

Odd to see a human mixed in with a Disney piece.

Hedy De Vine-1948

Today's my birthday! I am old. Not old enough to have read this birthday story when it was new but sometimes I feel like I'm that old!
