One of my favorite Golden Age comic titles is SMASH COMICS from Quality. Among the book's stars were Jack Cole's MIDNIGHT, Lou Fine's THE RAY and Klaus Nordling's LADY LUCK. ESPIONAGE was another well-above average series created by Will Eisner and starred an agent known as Black X. This episode is drawn absolutely beautifully by Alex Kotzky. Kotzky's name was often tied in his lifetime to dull. lifeless art due to three decades of drawing the dull. lifeless soap opera comic strip, APARTMENT 3-G. This art, however, is far from dull or lifeless!
