SubZero-John Daly-1941

Sub-Zero and his eskimo sidekick Freezum appeared in BLUE BOLT in the early forties. They can freeze things with rays from their fingers you see. In fact, they freeze the water coming over a giant dam in this story! Well..we're told they do. Oddly artist John Daly--who is not the newsman associated with WHAT'S MY LINE?--chose not to actually show that. Instead, we're told it's about to happen and in the next panel, rather than the showstopper we could have been given, it's already a done deal. In the end, though, our hero sends Freezum to call for a repair crew stating that he would remain there keeping the water frozen until they could fix it. Does he realize that could and probably would take months!!!??
