as part of the Fawcett Fridays event we and DCM are partnering on, we are also having "Whiz Bang Wednesdays" when we will post some issues of Capt Billy's Whiz Bang that were not previously uploaded to CB+/DCM.
1st up this week are:
- Capt. Billy's Whiz Bang v03 #03 (1922-06)
- Capt. Billy's Whiz Bang v02 #17 (1921-02)
Capt Billy's Whiz Bang did not exist in a vacuum, there were other similar mags being published across the country. In addition to The Quirt
which posted last Friday http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=68441
,there were also Gloom
, Hot Dog
, Cap'n Joey's Jazza Ka Jazza
and Joy Book
, to name a few.
In an effort to add more BANG!

a note from Yoc: But remember - these are from a time when America was a different place with different sensibilities.
These are not politically correct in any way and might be offensive to some of our members.
And these were Not made for children.
ADMIN NOTE: we have scoured the internet for the available issues of Capt Billy and rest assured that they will be uploaded "when the time is right". So if you want to "help" and upload some, please check with me or Yoc before you do so.
