Comment: I wonder why the Green Turtle's face is completely obscured in EVERY single panel of this issue?? It's weird, all you see is the back of his head with the occasional completely obscured by shadows frontal view. In fact, what you can see on the cover (just his eyes) represents the closest thing to a full face shot! Bizarre... I initially noticed his face was entirely hidden on the splash panel and thought "that's odd for a splash page unless you're Fletcher Hanks..." then realized his face was nowhere to be seen in the entire story! LOL

Comment: Urban legend goes that the Green Turtle's creator, Chu Hing, wanted to make the Green Turtle a superhero of asian descent, which makes sense given he's always defending China. But the publisher disagreed, and presumably to preserve some degree of ambiguity about the Turtle's origins, Hing chose to never expose the Turtle's facial features. It's a pretty plausible hypothesis, given the times.

Notes: According to Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr., based on the ads, this appears to be material prepared in 1945, but released around 1950, along with the other issues numbered volume 2. Entire book is almost certainly lettered by the same individual. Suggested by Jim Ludwig July 2008 and Eric Schumacher agrees suggesting "Two possible names are Ellen Cole (wife of L.B. Cole) and M. Tweed. Ellen Cole also did lettering for Holyoke in 44-45, and it seems like I've seen this lettering before (but that could also be simply because I've looked at the book so much over the years), so I kind of lean toward her."
