Number 1849: Boy Commandos in Davy Jones’ Locker
This fantasy comes to us from the Simon and Kirby studio, and features the Boy Commandos. They have survived the war only to succumb to a mine on the International Date Line, and find themselves fighting the souls of dead pirates. Holy Pirates of the Caribbean.
It is from Boy Commandos #14 (1946). The Grand Comics Database attributes the art to Louis Cazeneuve, and the writing to Joe Samachson, both with question marks because the GCD isn’t sure.
It has been a few years since I last showed a Boy Commandos story. Click the thumbnail:
