Not so these stories, also by Kurtzman. They are crudely drawn superhero stories from Super-Mystery Comics Vol. 3 No. 5 (1943). Harvey was just 18 or 19 when he was a member of the Louis Ferstadt comic art shop. Despite the amateurish quality they are early work by an important figure in comic art history, and in addition I couldn’t resist showing the Buckskin strip, which has some panels of hanged men in a barn. It's the horror comics fan in me coming out. Some years later there were reports that Kurtzman had complained about the horror comics from his employer, EC Comics, saying they would get them in trouble. He was right. I wonder if that was from his experience; perhaps the Buckskin story got criticized for its excesses.
