Combine Iron Man and the Hulk and what do you get? The Iron Hulk, of course! Only this robot story came out several years prior to Iron Man OR the Hulk!

Lee Elias's art fell out of favor just about the time I discovered comic books but I have to admit I always enjoyed finding him in the nickel back issue boxes as I was growing up! Here we see him on one of DC's forgotten Silver Age continuing series.

Our hero doesn't even get a logo here as the publisher tries to pretend it's just a true crime story and not a superhero story. Everything about this, even the lettering, reminds me of one of the the late period Will Eisner's unknown (at least to me) SPIRIT ghosts before Wally Wood took over for the Outer Space SPIRIT stories.

Whoever scanned this one seems to think the art us by someone name "Terry Gillson," I believe. GCD has nothing but question marks and I don't see Gillson in Bails' Who's Who.
Jake Oster writes, "The Kinker Kincaid artist may be Terry Gilkison (1892-1957). Gilkison did "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" type features for Ned Pines’ Thrilling pulp magazines in the 1930s.Gilkison also did The Flying Fox in More Fun Comics #37–38, 41–51 (November 1938–January 1940). After WW2, he contributed one-panel gag cartoons to Gee Whiz and Humorama, which were digest-sized humorous pin-up magazines for men.

I love the early movies with Leslie Charteris' evergreen Simon Templar character--the Saint. Watched one last week, in fact. (Not this one) This was part of a thankfully short-lived attempt at translating current hit films into comics format using actual stills, as little actual artwork as possible, and TONS of text!
