The Case of the Noisy Room-Bob Powell-1956


There isn't much to the mystery here but it is quite nicely drawn by what appears to be Bob Powell. The people in the first panel of page 2 seem to have wandered in briefly from another story as the man's cartoonish countenance looks little like the he-man of the preceding page.

    Powell had a tendency to do that sort of reaction shots that look like a precursor to the sort of thing you'd see in a lot of Japanese anime (like the Teen Titans series).
    Look at his "Spirit of 76" stories in Harvey's Green Hornet Comics and you'll see it in almost every tale!
