Eye-Yi-Yi

Sorry for the delay between posts. I planned to put something up sooner, but ended up injuring my cornea after attempting to lift an 8 lb. poodle.

It’s a long and embarrassing story …

At any rate, the pain has finally subsided after a million or so antibiotic eye-drops and I should be back on my feet in no time. To celebrate, here’s a vintage crime tale starring the most unusual Golden Age super-hero of all: The Eye!

For those of you unfamiliar with the ocular avenger, The Eye was … umm … a giant floating eyeball who understandably struck fear into the criminal element whenever and wherever he (she? it??) appeared. It’s admittedly an obscure concept for a costumed hero, but at least DC couldn’t sue the creators for copying Superman!

From Keen Detective Funnies #24 (Centaur Publications, 1940), here’s “The Eye Sees.” Story and art are credited to Mark Schneider.
