Pretty Fly

00

In the annals of obscure super-heroes, few characters suffered through an origin story more bizarre and violent than Harvey Comics’ Fly-Man. From a nutty scientist father to gun-crazy thugs wielding acid, Clip Foster probably deserved more than two appearances for all the trouble he encountered while launching his war against crime.

From Spitfire Comics #1 (Harvey, August 1941), here’s the “Origin Of The Fly-Man.” The art is credited to Sam Glanzman.
