Favorite heroes of MLJ Comics Giant: Gwandanaland Comics #2107 -- The Complete Stories of Inferno - Fireball - Black Jack - The Web!
INFERNO, THE FLAME BREATHER began as a criminal, chased by Steel Sterling for his criminal partnership with Twisto, The Rubber Man. He ended up helping Steel Sterling against The Rattler, and took his punishment by refusing parole and going to jail ---- and so the story begins..... (INFERNO appeared in Zip Comics #10-13 and Blue Ribbon Comics #13-19)
THE FIREBALL was the alter ego of Ted Tyler, who gained his powers after The Bug knocked him out and left him to die in a fire. He could absorb and control flames, melt bullets before they could harm him, and make super-leaps through the air. THE FIREBALL had no secret identity, known in town as Fireman Tyler. (THE FIREBALL appeared in Pep Comics #12-20)
Jack Jones was imprisoned in a wall by gangsters and left to die, but he was able to use a playing card to cut an air hole and survive until he was rescued. This near-death experience motivated him to become BLACK JACK, a costumed crimefighter with no special powers, but his daring, his smarts, and his desire to thwart evil. His card-inspired exploits came up against gangsters and murders, and such villains as Queen of Hearts and Poker Face. He had thrilling stories in Zip Comics (and multiple cover appearance), and Gwandanaland Comics has the first and only BLACK JACK collection in print!
“Spin your web of crime, you creatures of evil! Yes...spin it strong, spin it cleverly, spin it any way you will! But this is your warning....you are weaving about you a mesh from which there is no escape....a trap of your own making. YOU CAN'T ESCAPE THE WEB!”
Thus began the story of THE WEB, in reality John Raymond, who spends his days studying the criminal mind as professor of criminology, and his night fighting it as THE WEB. His stories in Zip Comics are some of the best superhero adventures of the era, and Gwandanaland Comics has his entire series for you!
This is a trade paperback collecting:
