Comment: Thank you, Yoc, for the comment and the tech assist, thanks to Peter H. for the original comic! Hurray Team! Just paying it forward.---------- Captain Marvel socks Nippo the villain into a volcano in the Fawcett issue #24, in the Canuck version he's just socked. That's one of the differences between the two versions which I just compared with each other. There's small differences in the dialogue and text but the biggest difference

Comment: is in the different secondary character designs, different staging and details of the panels. One panel that might be detailed in the Fawcett is simplified in the Double A and vice versa. Some panels are very dramatic by CC Beck, like his half page splash of the zeppelin in The American Lord Haw Haw while the unknown artist in the Double A emphasizes Captain Marvel or other figures and closeup faces. This artist (maybe artists) is a bit more realistic in his figures while Beck is Beck, leaning more toward cartoony. It was interesting to do a page by page comparison.

Comment: And some changes of titles. The Second Pearl Harbour story doesn't even mention The Monster Society of Evil though it is Chapter 3 of that "Thrilling Serial" and CM just visits Minneapolis. ---------- Thanks to the DCM for hosting these Canadian Whites. Cheers!

Comment: Thank you for this piece of comic book history;it is a real curio.The art lacks the charm of the original, and resembles the early Simon and Kirby effort at the good Captain.The Fawcett originals were in a unique class of their own,and this goes to prove it.

Comment: Fascinating to compare this effort to the original Fawcett comic. The Anglo-American comic almost had the look of an underground comic. I can't understand why the A-A artists changed the staging and the looks of the characters.

Comment: As I understand it, the Canada WECA act forbade importation of US comics into Canada (but not scripts for comics), so the Canadian artists couldn't see the original pages or what certain characters looked like.
