Sargon the Sorcerer-Howard Purcell-1943

Here's one of Sargon the Sorcerer's more serious tales before his strip, like so many others, was taken over by a comical sidekick. Technically an All-American character (and I am NOT getting into that mess now) he was revived by DC in the late sixties as a villain! The character was bounced around quite a bit before being recently superseded by his son. Although the series had some fun early art by the legendary Joe Kubert, this tale is illustrated by Howard Purcell very nicely indeed.
