Super-American-Sy Reit-1942

Here's the final appearance of the rather overbearing Super-American, drawn by Seymour "Sy" Reit, co-creator (with Joe Oriolo) of the friendly ghost, Casper! Reit also illustrated nearly a hundred children's books before his passing in 2001.

Every page a jawdropper. "Overbearing" doesn't even begin to describe it; it reads like the author fervently believed that Timely's stuff like "Captain America Meets the Reaper!" was far too wishy-washy and if he didn't hammer the message home on every page, poor idiot American readers would immediately cave in to the Hun. Love that splash panel, though.

Thanks for posting!
