A great Christmas cover with no holiday spirit inside. With the exception of “The Story of Christopher Columbus.”
Columbus Day celebrates its namesake’s arrival in the Americas. Observance of the holiday varies from area to area. It shares itself with Yorktown Victory Day in Virginia and Puerto Rico Friendship Day on the Virgin Islands.
Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash are the mystery men and woman of the book with Hop Harrigan keeping the skies safe from Nazi menaces.
Mermaids are the villains in Wonder Woman’s story “The Subsea Pirates.”
Doiby Dickles becomes the damsel in distress for Green Lantern in “A Tale of a City.”
The Flash is featured in “The Tale of the Winged Horse.” An invitation is extended to join the liar’s circle.
Without a doubt, the oddest story is “Filipinos are People.” The “yarn” is “devoted to furthering understanding among the peoples of the world.”
Also included are some one and dones from Mutt and Jeff.
