Daredevil Comics #6

Yesterday, we previewed Lev Gleason’s Golden Age classic “Daredevil,” coming soon to VillainPaper! Hold on to your boomerangs because today we’re doing one better and adding Daredevil #6 to our free offerings! The primary story, written and beautifully illustrated by Charles Biro, pits Daredevil against a science experiment gone wrong (you’re on the right track if you imagine the intersection of “The Island of Dr. Morneau,” “Child’s Play,” and “The Wolfman”). Daredevil aside, Issue #6 features a veritable fountain of heroes and heroines: Pat Patriot takes down a German WWII support network, and Nightro searches for a crazed serial killer! But the absolute highlights of the issue have to be the villains, including the enigmatic King Questionmark and, of course, the Claw! All 134 issues are packed with action, and available on VillainPaper soon!

Nickel Comics #4

Nickel Comics was a short-lived 1940s anthology series that made a big impact for Fawcett. Issue #1 introduced the world to a Bill Parker creation, Bulletman, an intrepid crime fighter who flew around in a gravity-defying metal helmet and possessed superhuman strength and intellect thanks to a chemical cocktail he created.  Bulletman would go on to get his own series (also on VillainPaper!), but for a time Fawcett was content to give him prime real estate in Nickel Comics.  In addition to a Bulletman story, Nickel Comics #4 has something for everyone: wizards, jungle mayhem, a trip to Saturn with Captain Venture, a South American crime fighter named the Red Gaucho.
