Dr. Voodoo in "Quest For the Golden Flask:Part II" (Fawcett;1941)

Blogger has been giving me a fit lately as I'm trying to upload posts and I only have enough patience to dick around with these things so much. If a few of the recent entries seem a bit off, for instance too much space in-between panels, be grateful for whats there and don't sweat the minor details. I'll spare you a repetition of the profanity these gaffes elicited from me.

Today's golden age Dr. Voodoo (aka Hal Carey) adventure is Part II of "Quest For the Golden Flask", which is taken from Whiz Comics #18 (Jun. 1941); originally published by Fawcett and featuring lovely artwork by Mac Raboy. The Grand Comics Database says that this chapter introduces someone called "Nero" but unless the old wizard goes by that name, I don't know who that is and a "King Richard" supposedly guest stars too, but doesn't actually seem to be present.

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 creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
