Pure Excitement Comics, the number one source for original
Golden Age comic book reprints on the Web!
welcome to the the 21st issue!
Our first feature this month
is the Steel Fist, a virtual unknown from
Blue Circle Comics no. 5 (vol. 2 no. 2) published in March of
1945 by Enwil Associates, Inc. The Steel Fist, a hero who fought evil with
the aid of a metal gauntlet (but not two for some reason),
appeared in Blue Circle Comics 1-5.
Our second feature this issue
is Micro-Face, from Clue Comics no. 4 published in
June of 1943 by Hillman Periodicals, Inc. Micro-Face, who did not have a small face as
the odd name might suggest, but rather had some type of microphone set-up in his mask, appeared in
Clue Comics 1-7, 10, 11, and vol. 2 no. 3.
In the third
spot this month, by request, is Lady Luck, from
Smash Comics no. 44, published in July 1943 by Everett M. Arnold/Quality Comics.
Lady Luck appeared in Smash Comics 42-85 and Lady Luck Comics 86-90 (the title which
Smash Comics became at the end of its run).

my first CD-ROM, featuring the Target and the Targeteers, is still available!
