Blue_Beetle_#13 [Aug'42][Fox]-68pg-c2c
Often shared online as #12 for some stupid reason - check the IFC to verify your scan.

Comment: Apparently the same scan as what is listed as BB12, but with a better, unaltered cover.

Comment: if you check the inside front cover you will find that all versions of #12 currently being shared are actually #13 as I mentioned in the description above.

Comment: 4 or 5 mediocre Blue Beetles but the V Man (patriotically dressed spy chaser etc) was nice, with a well drawn baddie. The final story, Spark Stevens by Joe Kubert about two hard socking sailors was crude and rather grotesque and reminded me a little of Paul Cadmus' sailors. Definitely an interesting story in an offbeat sense.
