Mr. Mystic-Bob Powell-1941

There's a lot of colorful characters in this early installment of THE SPIRIT's back-up strip by Bob Powell. The artist would go on to a successful career in comics drawing THE SHADOW, THE MAN IN BLACK, scores of horror comics and quite a few superhero tales. He also co-designed (with Wally Wood) the notorious MARS ATTACKS reading cards and most recently was the subject of a great book by Craig Yoe!

I imagine the writer laughing at “Almost magically” in the caption for 4:8.
