"A Glass Of Milk" - The Phantom

The Phantom likes milk.




Actually I remember the milk business from one of the later stories, but this might have been the first time they used it in The Phantom.

Black Angel

The Black Angel looked about the same as Black Venus. I suppose she must have been first, but they're still just about the same character. The Black Angel has a recurring opponent in Baroness Blood, who turns up again in this adventure, which was originally published in AIR FIGHTERS #9 in 1943. Art is credited to John Cassone.

"The Guns Of Jesse James" - HEADLINE COMICS #27

This story was attributed to Kirby by the Jack Kirby page on facebook, and to Joe Simon by Comic Book Plus. They worked together on HEADLINE COMICS and they might have both worked on this story. Originally published in HEADLINE COMICS #27 ( Nov.-Dec. 1947 ).

Black Hood - TOP-NOTCH LAUGH #28

The Black Hood from the same issue of TOP-NOTCH LAUGH as the Suzie story.















Suzy's adventures began in MLJ's TOP NOTCH LAUGH. Here's a story from issue #28.

The floorwalker in this story looks like Franklin Pangborn, who played that type in the movies.
