Red Rube-Ed Robbins-1943


Probably the biggest of the MLJ heroes not revived in the sixties, Red Rube is, in a way, a shirtless variation on Captain Marvel. Rather than yell, "Shazam!," he has to yell, "Hey, Rube!"Art here is by Ed Robbins, perhaps better known for his violent Mike Hammer comic strip of a few years later.

  1. By the way, "Hey Rube" is the distress call of carnival workers.
