The Heroes of Rural Home Part Five

Today's story are Jun-Gal & The Green Turtle from Blazing Comics # 3 (September 1944), and The Judge from Red Circle Comics # 2 (February 1945). I can't say that The Judge is a character I really care about. With only two appearances in the first two issues of Red Circle Comics, to me he's simply another masked hero along the lines of The Clock, The Mouthpiece or The Spirit. The Judge is an interesting concept, there just aren't enough stories for me to really get into it. Jun-Gal is a feature I like mainly because of the artwork. The Green Turtle? He's ok.

Look for a couple of installments of "The Heroes of Rural Home" next week. I've planned a post for April 1st which, in order to keep things in some sort of order, demands that I up the frequency of postings before then.

All of today's stories were taken from scans available on

A quick note ...

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth, and I haven't given-up on this blog. I have some books I'm working on scanning, which is chewing-up some of my free time. Either later this week or next week, I'll get back to "The Heroes of Rural Home" because I'm having fun with that, and possibly another "Art Appreciation" post, although I'm just not sure who I'ld be focusing on yet. As for any other themes I might add in the future, I have ideas but nothing concrete yet.
