COMIC BOOK COMPULSIVE — Book of All Comics Part 3

And, at long last, here’s the third and final part of Book of All Comics.  First up, an adventure of Johnny Earthquake, one of those without portfolio crime fighters you had  a lot of  back in the Golden Age who operated without the benefit of a detective’s badge or private detective’s license.  He’s also a good example of just how desperate for names you could get back then.

Next up a story featuring Red Robbins, a supposedly super fast crime fighter, although in this installment he doesn’t use his powers even once (the closest he comes to running is a “desperate leap”.   More of interest in his toxic racist stereotype “faithful negro friend” Speed Karr, who appears to be a moonlighting Ebony White from The Spirit.

And finally, two shorts featuring Pussy Katnip, a ‘Cafe owner who drinks a vitaminized “catnip” drink and gains superpowers’.   It’s not good but, gosh, is it weird.
