Comment: The production value seems to be cranked a bit on the second entry of the Avenger (Space Detective) and Teena, his beautiful helper. The story is fairly well plotted out and once again roughly on a par with contemporary Golden Age pulp sci fi, and the story includes more of the Solar System ranging from Mercury to Saturn. The gorgeous, but depraved and criminal, Bat Women of Mercury are the best visuals in the 3 part story about taking down the Gargoyle. Part 3 deals with (sexually motivated and completely legal) slave trading in a rather over friendly manner--where the crime is hijacking the slaves. Part 3 also has layouts by Wood. The book finishes with a fairly well written Shadow Squad story about a special squad of the NYC police in the year 2000. Interestingly illegal (hispanic) immigration (from Spain) is a key issue along with gun running in undersea cargo subs. 36 pages in all.
