Pre-Code Classic Adventure Comics Vol. 7 (Slipcase Edition)
DYNAMITE : Comic Media (1953 Series) Issues #1 - #5 May 1953 - January 1954
Johnny Dynamite created by Pete Morisi was a hard-boiled private detective, known as "The Wild Man from Chicago." Good friends with the D.A. but readily accepted by the underworld - he smoked cigarettes constantly, cursed frequently and had a bad habit of getting shot and beaten by his enemies. But always gave as good as he got - he was an experience and persistent detective taking his cases very personally and killed many of his early foes, claiming they were reaching for a weapon. Myra Benz, who had shot him in the eye, was brazenly killed without any true justification beyond his own sense of justice.
The other main artist across Comic Media titles was Don Heck, who in 1955 would be recruited by Stan Lee to Atlas Comics, later to become Marvel Comics. Where he became one of the architects of what became known as 'The Marvel Age of Comics,' along with Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and Dick Ayers.
So combined Pete and Don make this 1950's five-comic set, today's winner but be warned, stock is limited! You better get your money ready, they'll be going fast - and you do not need Johnny on your tail!
