Black Hood-Al Camy-1942


Black Hood stories are some of the best GA superhero stories but this one is particularly interesting for its clever effort at approximating a newspaper's Sunday rotogravure section.

Really nice rotogravure section. I wonder if that's where Frank Miller copped the phrase "dark knight" from.

Just wondering- where do you get your scans from? Are there specific websites you get these from? Because scan quality seems to vary from story to story.

I've collected most from different sources over the years. Some I scan myself. At one point, I was cleaning and brightening the scans but readers said they preferred the vintage look so I just leave them in whatever condition they're in now.
