Chapter 20 - Captain Marvel and the Monster Society of Evil!

Happy holiday weekend comic reading, Kiddoes! It's time for chapter 20 of "Captain Marvel and the Monster Society of Evil" the landmark 25 chapter serial from 1943-44!

The Big Red Cheese doesn't squish Mr. Mind and gallop away jubilently in this chapter...but it IS a good one. Read on, and when you're through have ANOTHER turkey sammich for ME.

Talk to you soon.

Those old Captain Marvel comics were the funnest. I guess what I was reading as a kid were the reprints in the comic called Shazam.

That's what I was first exposed to as well KW. My feeble childhood brain didn't see the fun back then, I was looking for Jack Kirby at every turn and thought these were being written "down" to kids.

Luckily I got a little smarter as I grew older (though some say not much) and saw the raw, pure fun in these and saw the world was big enough for Beck, Kirby, Cole, Kurtzman, Ditko, Buscema (both), Romita, Eisner, Perez, Miller, Fine and everyone in between!
