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.
