||Another fine issue. I don't much care for the sea dog, air dog, prairie dog, or adventurer genres (and thus half the series in this comic) but am finding Biff Bannon a nice mix of the grotesque and gruesome. Landor, the Monster Maker may be a one trick pony of a shaggy dog tale, but so far it is interesting enough. Smoke Carter, the fireman, really works for me so far, great kinetics in many of the panels, and a transvestite villain is a little kinky. Best of all is Shock Gibson, who as an electricity based guy is now showing electric powers, he can generate an electric forcefield and give off electricity from his body, and uses it both as a weapon and a tool. Also he is beautiful. His red costume, that beautiful golden helmet, the nice lightning bolt on his belt and yellow boots and flairing gloves give him a lot of visual flair, especially for 1939, which is a definite plus for the series. Again his story is extra long, 22 pages and so far this also adds welcome scope. The villain, Baron Von Kampf looks a lot like Murnau's Nosferatu, Count Von Orlock. Lastly, I'm not sure how to put it, but the (not excessive) naivete of some of the key dialog just adds to the charm.
