The Newsboy Legion by Simon and Kirby Vol. 2
In these 1940s tales from STAR-SPANGLED COMICS #33-64, the scrappy inner city boys known as the Newsboy Legion work together to stop crime in their home of Suicide Slum. Watched over by adult hero the Guardian - a.k.a. policeman Jim Harper-the Newsboy Legion battle crime through their own newspaper reporting, taking on crooked politicians, slum lords, fifth column agents and more.
