The Truth about 1947:
Vandal Savage was on the first incarnation of the Injustice Society but the rest of the team is virtually unknown (at least unknown to me). These guys were Thinker, Gambler, Wizard, Per Dragon and Brain Wave.
Now for this week’s Two Truths and A Lie. The Year is 1948:
- New Comic “Mr. District Attorney” came out. It was based on a radio show and advertised “Based on radio’s #1 hit!” Mr. District Attorney was a crime comic who’s main character was nameless and it lasted for 67 issues.
- To combat Archie Comics, DC started publishing “Leave It Binky.” In the comics, Binkey Biggs attempted to date the beautiful Peggy but his little brother, “Little Allergy” would always make trouble.
- Westerns were a big hit in movie theaters at the time, so DC also started the comic “Little Big Town.” In it’s 49 issue run, Sheriff Tate would have to wrangle Black Bart and other bandits as they made trouble for the town of Gateswallow. He also tried to win the heart of the town nurse Sue while spurning the advances of the bar maid Betsy.
