Comic StoryThe Bombing of Pearl Harbor (9 pages)
SynopsisThe Axis Powers spread a wide net of mayhem, attacking Pearl Harbor (by the Germans yet!), Guam and Portland, Maine. Buddy's idea of building a wire net, carried below airplanes to foul up the invader's plane props, was quite successful. While defending the seas near Maine, Uncle Sam encountered the Spirit of John Paul Jones, which inspired Sam to use America's retired frigates to encircle the enemy in fire, even as enemy soldiers invaded Boston, Massachusetts.
FeaturingUncle Sam
CreditsScript: Harry Stein [as William E. Eisner] (signed) | Pencils: Lou Fine | Inks: Lou Fine
ContentGenre: Superhero | Characters: Uncle Sam; Buddy Smith; John Paul Jones (as a ghost; cameo); the Nazis (villains)
NotesThis story eerily told of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.....and the magazine was cover dated December, 1941, even though the story was probably produced some six months in advance. Writer credit changed from Gil Fox to Harry Stein from an interview Gil Fox gave Jim Amash, portion of which reprinted by Amash on the Comics History Exchange on Facebook (7 December 2016). Fox confirms Stein wrote the story. Fox also disputes Will Eisner's claim he had researched and suggested the idea.
