Manhunter and Thor-Police Comics-1944

Nothing too special about this almost generic Quality strip. It just made me think of Walt Simonson for some reason and I couldn't figure out why. Then it occurred to me--Manhunter? Thor? NOW we know what inspired Walt to two of his greatest triumphs! (Or maybe not.)


  1. Perhaps it should be noted that this story is modelled on Donovan's Brain by Kurt Siodmak.

  2. Obviously stolen from Siodmak.

    Comic book writers did that a lot--stole from the sf/fantasy/horror pulps of the day. Of course Donovan's Brain had quite a life outside of the pulps. But I'm betting this comic story was done before the yarn was developed into radio and film formats.
