Neon the Unknown-Alex Blum-1940

GCD speculates that this beautifully drawn strip, written by Jerry Iger, was drawn by Alex Blum. Since nearly everything from Quality Comics at this time was drawn to look like it was by Will Eisner, I suppose it can be heard to tell for sure. Note that this stylish mystic literally makes the bad guys' heads explode at the end!

Somewhere between the 5th and 6th panels of page 5, the Four Lamas become Three, with nobody noticing. At story's end, all three of their minds explode, right there on-panel, and it certainly looks fatal. ... BUT !! ...
One of the Four Lamas, invisible and forgotten, apparently escaped the brain-exploding fate met by the other three. He was never seen or mentioned or remembered again. This takes "the power to cloud men's minds" to a whole new level; he may be the most dangerous supervillain in the Quality Comics Universe.
