Week 31: Stay Calm

What is it about Batman and guns, Bob Kane knew it was an irresistible combo and used it well in this splash for Detective Comics #72. Rich Buckler and Klaus Janson give us a very unique two page splash in…

Undervalued Spotlight #140

Wonder Comics #1, Fox Features Syndicate (May 1939) This is such a beast of a Golden Age comic. I’ve had Wonder Comics #1 in my scopes for a while but eased up on it after Undervalued Spotlight fan Warren contributed…

Undervalued Spotlight #114
