FeaturingThe Marksman
CreditsPencils: Irving Tirman | Inks: Irving Tirman
ContentGenre: Adventure; War | Characters: The Marksman [Baron Povalski, aka Major Hurtz]; Anna; Major Sinushi (villain)
NotesOriginally credited "Bill Quackenbush ?" This is the same art as in #54. Tirman is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and heads in 3/4 backview with streched neck and the jawbone going back behind the ear, even in side view, is peculiar. This can be found in his credited "Mike Gibbs Guerilla" story in Adventure Comics #88.
Comic StoryRookie Rankin Gets the Last Laugh (8 pages)
FeaturingRookie Rankin
CreditsPencils: Mort Leav
ContentGenre: Detective-mystery | Characters: Rookie Rankin; Slim; Squeak; Horse; Laughie
NotesOriginally credited "Witmer Williams ?", but he has quite different faces with very bushy eyebrows and small mouth, narrow undistinct eyes and larger, rounded jaw. Compared with Leav's signed story in Power Comics #4, everything matches, face of the policeman, large hands, way of running with high lifted knees and some panels without backgrounds. Different inking.
