Tex Thomson-Bernard Baily-1940

Premiering alongside Superman in ACTION COMICS # 1, TEX THOMSON (later "Thompson") was a blond adventurer who later became a dark-haired, masked superhero with a whip and a flying carpet. Here's one of his weirder earlier adventures with a Cyclopean villain reminiscent of the classic SILVER STREAK/DAREDEVIL character, THE CLAW! Art has some nice, easy to follow layouts and is by Bernard Baily, known also for his work on Hour-Man which, in fact, is plugged at the last panel.
