For The Birds


00

Mac Raboy’s tenure on Captain Marvel Jr. produced some of the most beautifully illustrated stories of the Golden Age. His style, which was much more realistic than C.C. Beck’s take on Captain Marvel, were matched up with tales that were a shade or two darker than the Big Red Cheese’s kid-friendlier adventures.

While Dr. Vultur, for instance, was a garden variety evil Nazi genius, Junior’s methods of foiling the villain’s nefarious plans were as cold-blooded as any modern vigilante – even if they were masked with a smile.

From Captain Marvel Jr. #18 (Fawcett, April 1944), here’s “The Birds Of Doom.” The art is by Raboy.
