   Welcome to Pure Excitement Comics, the number one source for original Golden Age comic book reprints on the Web!

   Hey, everybody, welcome to the the 22nd issue!
   First up this month is another great female character from Quality Comics: Wildfire. The story is from Smash Comics no. 37 published in November of 1942. Wildfire appeared in Smash Comics 25-37.
   Our second feature this month is the great Basil Wolverton's Spacehawk, from Target Comics vol. 2 no. 4, published in June of 1941 by Funnies Incorporated. Spacehawk appeared in Target Comics vol. 1 no. 5 through vol. 3 no. 10. Reprints also appeared in later issues of Blue Bolt Comics.
   In the final spot this issue is Chuck Magnon, the Immortal Man, from Red Dragon Comics no. 9, published in January of 1944 by Street and Smith Publications, Inc. As far as I can tell, this was the character's only appearance.
   Hope you enjoy this issue. Also, the Target and the Targeteers CD-ROM is still available! More information about the disc, which costs a mere $10 (shipped), can be found at this link!
