Eye Spy

It’s time for another adventure starring the Golden Age’s most unusual super-hero: The Eye!

I did plan to make a snarky comment about the story’s depiction of white, strawberry-blonde Afghans but it turns out that such people do, in fact, exist. A defeat for Internet smart-asininity I suppose, but it’s always good to reaffirm that even the moldiest of comic books contain something educational.

Stick that in your craw, Fredric Wertham!

Today’s story originally appeared in Detective Eye #2 (Centaur Publications, December 1940). The art is by the creator of both The Eye and Dell Publications’ Owl, Frank Thomas.
