From the Dust Bin: Hale of the Herald

Here is yet another glimpse at a forgotten golden age feature from publisher Ned Pines Better/Standard/Nedor Comics.

Hale of the Herald followed the daring adventures of an intrepid newspaper reporter who battled against crime in America via the use of an illicit drug which allowed the young man to temporarily turn invisible. Hale would conveniently pop a pill when imperiled and put the kibosh on confounded evil-doers.

The strip ran primarily in issues of Thrilling Comics, but Hale also made a single appearance in an issue of Black Terror and he also fought the good fight in twin appearances in Fighting Yank.
