After listening to JACK ARMSTRONG on the radio for so many years
I was truly thrilled to find this on the newsstand.

I remember finding this while traveling...it was in a rack of
mostly pulp magazines in a Greyhound Bus Station in Baltimore.
There was no specific rack for comics just pulps and a mixture
of weeklies.

I have always thought that the early TOMAHAWK stories were a continuation of stories from the EC (Educational Comic) series
"PICTURE STORIES FROM AMERICAN HISTORY"

.

I was always on the lookout for FEATURE BOOKS but I was only able
to find these three on the newsstand.

Loved these books that reprinted the daily comic strips.

One of the more "creepy" villains.
If I'm not mistaken did they not misspell villain?

Just saw that an ALL-AMERICAN #94 graded CGC 6.5 sold on the
latest COMIC LINK auction for $2,433.00...didn't realize that
there was any interest out there in ALL-AMERICAN COMICS...glad
to see it.

Noticed that a lot of the recent pop-up ads for mycomicshop.com
feature a copy of GREEN HORNET COMICS #28 for sale...this is one
of the few comics I have two copies of.

Another title that I have two copies of...this was the first
wrap-around cover I remember finding...also Overstreet claims
it was the fifth Flying Saucer story in comic books.

@martymann That Flash Gordon is awesome!!! One of the cover themes that I like to collect are UFO's. I have not seen this one, or if I have, I didn't realize there was an ufo on the back. It being a Dell Four Color just makes it more intriguing to me. But what REALLY got my interest was your comment about it being the 5th flying saucer story in comics. Since I read that, I have been trying to track down the first story. Alas, I have had no success yet. Do you happen to know what comic was the first?

According to Overstreet the first was a SPIRIT Section dated 9/28/47,
the second was SHADOW COMICS V7 #10 (1/48), the third was CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT #60 (2/48) and fourth BOY COMMANDOS #26 (3-4/48).

Some covers really stood out on the newsstand...and this one still
looks pretty good after 73 years.
