Number 1885: The Phantom Stranger and the Moon ©ult
“The Three Signs of Evil” is by John Broome, drawn by Carmine Infantino, inked by Sy Barry and Joe Giella. The first thing that struck me was the "c" in the circle, which here is an evil sign, but is also the symbol for copyright, as in “Copyright © 1952 National Comics Publications, Inc.”
Unlike my example, the boilerplate indicia DC used in that day doesn't use the symbol. So, for the purposes of this posting an evil symbol it is, and forget I said anything.
From Phantom Stranger #2 (1952):
In 2012 I showed the debut of the Phantom Stranger. Just click on the thumbnail.
