   By Peter B. Gillis
I have to say, the Wizard origin stuff is much wilder than I expected. To date, the only strips I'd read were him in present day, and didn't impress me in the slightest. But the idea of a revolutionary war super-hero inventing airplanes, radio (and steamboats!) is really stimulating fun. And it's well-handled on top of it. I am digging this.

Oh wait...This is the ancestor of the modern day wizard. Not quite as cool--it'd be more fun having the modern Wiz be a couple hundred years old--but it's still, for 1940, one of the only stories from that era that I'd say, "Hey--read this one!"
