Carnival of Death-St John-1952

Okay, here's an odd one. This masked hero is...Gary Miles! Seriously. That's his name. He even has a sidekick named Kip. Gary is the star and owner of some sort of traveling show called "the Knights of King Arthur." I have no idea if this was his only appearance but it was in a St. John horror comic, STRANGE TERRORS, in late 1952. At the risk of giving away the ending of this nicely (if anonymously) drawn tale, our "hero" murders a couple of folks, destroys the evidence by committing arson and then refuses to inform the police about the whole affair.
