Happy Veterans Day 2010!!
Dynamic Comics #1 (Oct. 1941) featured characters like Dynamic Man, Black Cobra, Lucky Coyne, Hale the Magician and this patriotic crusader, Major Victory. Marvel and DC both utilize the name now, but golden age publisher Harry A. Chesler got there first.
This story introduces Maj. Victory; his mentor, Father Patriot; and the villainous, Von Krumm. Comic book artist, editor and publisher, Charles Sultan is responsible for the art on this fine tale and the cover too. Although Sultan was the art director at Chesler from 1940 until 1953, he produced work for several companies on features like Minute Man, Rick O'Shay & Spy Smasher for Fawcett; Clipper Kirk, Sky Rangers & Suicide Smith for Fiction House and various romance stories and Black Condor for Quality.
Rather than jump right back into my "Nedor-A-Weekend" posts following last months Halloween/Strange Terrors celebration, I'm going to rotate some of the old golden age superhero stories from Chesler with my regular jungle comics stuff. There will also be a special weekend feature replacing my Nedor posts (at least for the time being). Kicking off this very Saturday, you are invited to be here for the start of "Science Fiction/Double Feature"; a weekly thrill ride of classic, golden age sci-fi comics and interesting filler pieces from Ziff-Davis.
