Barry is lauded as the first modern action hero in comics.

His arch villain, Fang Gow, was yet another Fu Manchu-styled stereotype. The plots and side characters could have easily been lifted from the pages of Sax Rohmer's Fu Manchu.

Atomic Comics reprinted 12 of their adventures with new art by Leo O'Mealia. With World War II over negative Chinese stereotypes were deemed usable again. See his reprinted adventures from Atomic Comics #1 below.

.Read more about Barry and Gow here. Plus to random pages from the original run. Leo O'Mealia's art is a bog improvement in my opinion.

Hmm, I might be more impressed if he hadn't managed to escape the first assassin bloke solely because he was a crappy housekeeper who didn't keep his rugs flat.
