Forgotten Stories: "Sherry Strikes a New Note" by RAOUL WHITFIELD (1943)


Okay, I knew that Black Mask great Raoul Whitfield also wrote aviation fiction, and juvenile adventure novels, but I never expected to find him in a comic book like Calling All Girls. But here he is, in the September 1943 issue, as provided to comicbookplus by movielover.

HARVEY KURTZMAN's Mr. Risk in "The Race Against Death" (1943)


This early Kurtzman effort is from Super-Mystery Comics Vol. 3 No. 3, dated January 1943. Ain't much hint of what's to come, but still an historical artyfact. Thanks to freddyfly for scanning it for comicbookplus.
