Popular Comics #54 - Version 2 (40 of 135)
   By atomahawk
It should be noted that this issue features the debut of backup feature Doctor Hormone, one of the obscure characters spotlighted in Jon Morris's book "The League of Regrettable Superheroes." Filled with weird characters and goofy, slightly ribald humor, it's surely one of the weirdest features of the Golden Age, and that is saying quite a bit. There's also the very hard-boiled "Crime Busters" plus some other charming oddities like The Voice, who wore invisible cellophane clothing, and weird space opera Captain Tornado.

NotesAccording 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, July 2012). Also note that Jerry Bails' Who's Who of American Comics Books says that Kenneth Kennedy is a pen name.
