Time for another cracktastic Fantomah: Mystery Woman of the Jungle adventure by Fletcher Hanks (as Barclay Flagg). This story is from Jungle Comics #6 (Fiction House, June 1940), which is in the public domain (scans courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com).

Trigger warning for the racist depiction of African indigenous people.

These scans are from a one-shot propaganda comic. Created in 1947 by an uncredited writer and artist, and issued by the Catechetical Guild Education Society, a Roman Catholic publisher, Is This Tomorrow envisions, step by step, how a communist takeover of America might take place. While the scenario isn't entirely implausible (we're not talking anywhere near Chick Tract-level distortion of reality, here), it does call for more than a little suspension of disbelief in places. And snark. Let's not forget the snark.

This 48-page comic is now in the public domain (scans courtesy of ComicBookPlus.com).

There's pretty much nothing I can say, to summarize this work's artistic and commercial impact on sequential art, that others haven't said before, so on to the scans, all from Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began (Pantheon, 1991). Total of nine pages out of 130: two from Chapter 1, one from Chapter 2, six (out of 24 pages) from Chapter 3.

Trigger warning for scenes of Holocaust atrocities and for racist speech.

Sorry, Mistah J, but as far as grim, unlucky origin stories go, I think this villain may have you beat. From the disturbed imagination of Golden Age cult favourite Fletcher Hanks (as Barclay Flagg), this is the story of Zomax, featuring Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle. It's from Jungle Comics #14 (Fiction House, February 1941), which is in the public domain (scans courtesy of Comic Book Plus).

When writing about a subject that interests him, you can tell a marked difference in the style of Garth Ennis' comics. Less toilet humour and shocking things for the sake of being shocking, for example. As such a lot of his books based on military history tend to be a lot less "Ennis" than, say, his superhero work.
Trigger warning for rape and racism )

(A total of 17 pages are used, 4 from issue 1, 3 from issue 2, 6 from issue 3, and 4 from issue 4. For about 1/5th the total pages)




So a while back I found out about the comic Deathwish, part of the Milestone imprint for DC comics headed up by the late Dwayne McDuffie... the point of the imprint was to give a voice to people to tell their own experiences, particularly minority writers. As such it birthed many great PoC characters created by writers of the same background; it also gave birth to one of the only transgender Lesbian characters I know of Marissa Rahm.

The comic was created by Maddie Blaustein (credited here under her assigned name Adam Blaustein), an intersex woman who transitioned socially from male to female and championed Transgender rights. She is more well known for her voice work then her comics (I only found out about her comics from one that made a review on Atop the Fourth Wall which is how I managed to look up Deathwish), where she voiced many male and female characters notably Meowth for a good chunk of the Pokemon dub before her death. Blaustein`s writing is accompanied by early art of the amazing JH Williams III.

The story of Deathwish focuses on on Marissa a police officer who is investigating a series of serial killings of Trans women and drag queens in the city of Dakota, where the victims are made to pose in "artistic poses". Over the course of her investigation she transitioned socially, and fell in love with the only known survivor of one of the killer's, Boots', attacks. Also involved is Deathwish a vigilante who is basically Punisher: SVU, it is now four years later and things are quickly reaching their climax.

I`ve only included the pages that deal with Marissa and Dini`s relationship specifically but there`s huge spoilers involved for the story. As a note if you want to track this one down be aware that it is quite graphic and may be triggery.

Trigger warning for misogynistic slurs, Holocaust references, and cis-sexism (on the part of characters not on the part of the writer) )

I, as a white, gay, privileged guy feel rather embarrassed about posting this a tribute to a genuinely remarkable lady of colour, who set her own standards and made her own rules, who went through things I can't even imagine, and handled them with more élan than I could ever hope to.

As such there are discussions of race and usage of outdated terms involving race below the cut, just thought that was worth a mention from the outset.

Do you miss Eclipse Comics? I certainly do. Let's lookl at the first issue of Eclipse Monthly, their first color anthology comic.



Three pages each of four ten-page stories, and two pages of a six-page story. WARNING: "Dope" is an adaptation of an early Sax Rohmer story, and has period racism.

Back to 1983. )

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.

Who is he? What is he? )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.
