Comic Book Cover For Whiz Comics 4 (3)
Whiz Comics 4 (3) (3 of 158)
   By Stoop Davy Dave
"Beautia for President!" does not appear in this issue of Whiz Comics. "Sivana's Venusian Kingdom" is the title of this issue's Captain Marvel story, and this story takes place, mostly on Venus, before Beautia visits Earth to run for President (May 1940). Whiz Comics dtd April 1940 (called #3B @ the DC Comics Database site, and called #3 on the cover) = Sivana's Venusian Kingdom. Whiz Comics dtd May 1940 (called #4 @ the DC Comics Database site, and on the cover) = Beautia for President.

Now this is more like it! A trip to Venus! Giant frogs! An even gianter lizard beast! Sivana learns Billy's secret! (Billy's awfully careless about saying Shazam in front of everybody in these early issues. Sivana's just the only one who's able to put two and two together, which by itself proves he has at least average intelligence.) The debut of Beautia! The debut of Sivana's distinctive evil laugh ("Heh heh heh!")! And a beauty contest for...some reason. (It seems it's only function is to give Billy a chance to track down Sivana and Beutia.) All in all, a fun story.

As far as I'm concerned, any comic featuring giant frogs wearing funnels for hats, is a great comic.
