"Magno & Davey vs. The Clown" (Part III)

This superhero yarn from Four Favorites #8 (May; 1945) was published by Ace Periodicals. I've previously posted two other stories from this issue featuring Lash Lightning & Capt. Gallant, but it has been awhile since they appeared here in the Catacombs.

Magno and Davey were created by golden age writer Paul Chadwick, who shares a name with a contemporary comic book guy (the creator of Concrete; published by Dark Horse), but there is no apparent connection between the two Chadwick's. Trivia is fun stuff isn't it? Maybe this is just an example of Earth 1/Earth 2. Ya' never know!


Upcoming on the blog will be more adventures of Rulah Jungle Goddess, the return of my "Gal" Friday feature and a few reviews of upcoming comics & films. Oh, and more "1970's Flashback" stuff. Joy!

This story was, believe it or not, actually stolen almost word for word from "The Return of the Red Skull" in 1941's "Captain America Comics #3".
Check out the recent reprint "Captain America: The Classic Years #1" if you don't believe me!
