FeaturingThe Voice
CreditsScript: Charles Verral? | Pencils: Jim Chambers (signed) | Inks: Jim Chambers (signed)
ContentGenre: Detective-mystery | Characters: The Voice [Tim Brant]; Professor Bert Wilson (inventor); Herman (villain); Mr. Bulinski (villain)
Notes"Copr. 1940 by R. S. Callender." This is the first story in which the hero calls himself the Voice. The Voice gets his power of invisibility this way: a phosphorescent gas clings to the cellophane fabric (worn by Tim Brant) giving out rays that render the body invisible. Art credits verified by Craig Delich, and the Who's Who indicates that Chambers did the art on this feature in 1940. The only other known artist for The Voice in 1940 was Stan Aschmeier, and this art is definitely not by him.

ContentGenre: Science Fiction | Characters: Captain Tornado; Jane Bordani
NotesOriginal indexer listed Kenneth Kennedy as the writer and artist for the story, but according to Jerry Bails' Who's Who of American Comic Books, Kenneth Kennedy was only a byline and the writer is unknown. According to Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr., Hames Ware identified Newt Alfred as the artist for the story in Popular Comics #49. The art in this story looks very similar to the art in that story (Greg Fischer, April 2014). "Copr., 1940, by R. S. Callender."
