Published under Better, one of the Ned Pines' publishing imprints, Exciting Comics had a stellar run between 1940 and 1949. The comic primarily featured the superhero The Black Terror, who debuted in Issue #9 and appeared through virtually the entire run and on covers through Issue #52. Starting in 1942, the Black Terror received his own title, but continued making regular appearances in Exciting Comics through its final issue in September 1949. As the series shifted its focus from the Black Terror, new characters like "Judy of the Jungle," "Johhny Dale, Secret Agent," and "Rick Howard, Mystery Rider" filled out the majority of the stories.
