Another celebration of the costumed adventurer in the early days of the American comic book! This month's debut characters include the wartime star of Speed Comics
, (and one of the best of the era's Captain America knock-offs), Captain Freedom
, as drawn by Arturo Cazenueve, a prolific artist who (particularly at DC in the 1940's) was often tapped to replace Jack Kirby when the King moved onto other features; Radar
, one of the first of the spy-and-espionage characters introduced to replace the patriotic "Axis-smashers" at the end of WWII (in his case, by Captain Marvel
publisher Fawcett); and Jack of Spades
, a very strange and somewhat mystical superhero type who has rarely been mentioned by Golden Age historians.
