Bentley of Scotland Yard-Sam Cooper-1940

Silver Streak-Jack Cole-1945


Plastic Man, the Comet, Playboy, Midnight, Betsy and Me, the daily Spirit, and a whole bunch of crime and horror stories. That's what everyone remembers from Jack Cole. For some reason, Silver Streak gets forgotten almost every time. Gid stuff, though! See for yourself.

Mission Supernatural-Bob Brown/Wally Wood-1971


Here's the return of the Superboy team of Bob Brown and Wally Wood from a  couple years earlier but, there, they LOOKED like Bob Brown inked by Wally Wood. Here. I sense other hands at work but not sure whose. Almost seems like Joe Staton at times but I don't think so as he was just starting out at Charlton and, I believe, working with Gil Kane.
