Number 2214: Up in the air, man
Air Man was short-lived, appearing in only two issues of Centaur’s Keen Detective Funnies and two of Detective Eye. Centaur was also short-lived, being the first comic book company to go out of business. Sadly enough, Harry Sahle was short-lived. He went on during the 1940s to do a lot of features, including what was a knack for teenage humor. He drew Candy for Quality Comics, and even Archie for MLJ/Archie Comics, then died in 1954 at age 41. Sahle was a journeyman comic book guy, drawing all sorts of comics, including superheroes for MLJ after Centaur went bust.
This episode of Air Man appeared in Detective Eye #1 (1940).
