Number 2441: The Triple Threat
The comic also includes a Beau Brummel and King O’Leary story, but I am showing only three stories (to go with the “triple” in Triple Threat): The Duke of Darkness, The Menace, and The Magnificent Epod. (Spell Epod backwards. The late Don Thompson used to say that comic book fans learned early to read backwards.)
“Duke of Darkness” is drawn by John Giunta under the name Jay Gee; “The Menace” is drawn by Louis Ferstadt, who had his own comic art studio (including at one time, Harvey Kurtzman); “Magnificent Epod” is credited to August Froelich (?) and Charles Voight (?), question marks meaning the art spotter isn’t sure.
