Featuring The Black Owl, Frankenstein, Green Lama and other great heroes, this issue of Prize Comics #12 from July of 1941 is a great read. I am a big fan of Dick Briefer's Frankenstein. Enjoy!

Some might not call this a true Golden Age comic book, but it's close. In any event, I'm featuring it here as Danger Trail #3 is considered one of the rarest early 1950's DC books. Enjoy!

Before Mary Marvel took over the cover duties on Fawcett's Wow Comics, Mr. Scarlet was the featured superhero. He was in many ways Fawcett's version of Batman. Like DC's Caped Crusader, Mr. Scarlet got his own sidekick, Pinky, whose origin and first appearance was in the page of Wow Comics #4, shown here. Enjoy!

Here are some nice copies of the last three issues (153, 154, 155) of Whiz Comics from 1953. The final two issues feature Dr. Death who regularly appeared in Fawcett's horror title, This Magazine is Haunted. These issues are considered "scarce", especially in high grade. There's even a C.C. Beck autograph on the bottom left corner of #153. Enjoy!
