The Defender-George Klein-1941

Not only were The Defender and Rusty one of the first imitations of Timely's successful Captain America and Bucky but, according to Internet sources, his first USA COMICS adventure only a month after the Captain's debut was actually a Simon and Kirby Cap adventure redrawn to depict the new heroes. This story here, from the next issue, is signed by George Klein who went on to be the perfect inker for both Curt Swan at DC and John Buscema at Marvel!

  1. Great little episode! An obvious S&K influence here, of course, which is always appreciated.
