Number 1945: “He called me a coward!”
For a comic selling itself as red-blooded male adventuring, there is an awful lot of feeling exhibited here. Ronald wants to be a doctor, but his dad wants him to be a two-fisted tycoon like him. What is a boy to do? The thought crossed my mind, when on safari shoot the old man in the back, claim hunting accident and take over empire, but that would just be wrong...so wrong. That would make it a crime comic.*
The Grand Comics Database says it is drawn by Bob Brown, with no idea who wrote the overloaded captions and speech balloons.
*I have a crime story from this issue scheduled for later this month.
