Number 1359: Boyoboy! The Boy Commandos
Even during their wartime days the stories occasionally slipped into fantasy and science fiction, and so it is with “The Triumph of William Tell” from Boy Commandos #30 (1948). The Grand Comics Database credits the penciling to John Severin and the inking to George Klein? (Question mark means they’re not sure.)
I’ve featured Boy Commandos a half dozen other times on this blog, but in this posting from 2010 I explain how I lost my near-mint copy of the first issue at the San Diego Comicon. It’s a sad story, and a cautionary tale at that. You may need a hanky when reading it.
