Worldbeater in "Trapped in Topsy-Turvy Land"(Prize;1945)

This post fills a recent request for more adventures of the odd trio of characters Worldbeater, Unggh and Jo-Blo from Prize Comics golden age series, Headline Comics #14 (Jul-Aug. 1945).

This tale follows our wacky trio who have landed in a world called Topsy-Turvy Land where everything is somewhat askew. In the previous issue, Worldbeater inadvertently jailed the planets real policemen and foolishly elevated their criminal counterparts into an exalted status. In fact for his efforts on their behalf, Worldbeater has been elected head of the worlds crime syndicate.

The artwork is by August Froehlich and I've also included the issues unrelated cover by artist Henry Kiefer.

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Oh NO! You DIDN'T. Nobody can be that hip so many times on one website! Most people don't even know who Worldbeater WAS, let alone have a "lost" episode.

I hereby pledge my undying devotion to your cause, my liege.

I see that you've been trolling the Catacombs archives. Be patient! There are a couple of other Worldbeater episodes here somewhere!

but I'm not a patient kinda guy! I must have these other Worldbeater episodes NOW -shriek-gibber-howl- (I don't react to frustration very well)
