Story from Fantastic Comics #15.

















Man the racketeers death was disapointing. I expect better from Stardust. Was Hanks losing intrest, or were the editors stepping in? Maybe its both?

I thought for sure Hanks was making up the term "sixth column," but nope, it has two completely contradictory definitions.

I can't help but feel that while the writer feels he has to write about overseas invaders, he feels it's just a distraction from the real problem: Racketeering.

Poor choice of branding there, I'd say. Instead of calling them his Sixth Column Boys, they should have been his Trusty Dusties. A lot more PR friendly, which he needs since he's able to impact with people hard enough to 'turn them to ashes'.

I had no idea Hanks ever followed up Stardust creating his sixth column, many thanks for posting this.
In addition to the racketeer's deaths being anticlimactic, their plot is, as unrealistic as it is, probably the most sensible and grounded of any Stardust villain's plot.

True. At least it's no worse than many of today's conspiracy theories... and in fact is a good deal saner than some of those (David Icke's "reptilians," anyone?).

Two things on this- One, Stardust again hands-holds the kids (who still lack names) that their presence is unnecessary. Though giving a bunch of kids the ability to read thoughts is going to have *fun* consequences!

Two, he's gotten a lot more punch-y and less use-weird-powers-y, which is a disappointment.


-Was Hanks losing intrest, or were the editors stepping in? Maybe its both?-

I'm not sure, he probably felt this way would do better maybe. Some of his other comics involve a fair amount of fisticuffs so maybe he just wanted to do punching, even if it loses Stardust's charm.
