By the way, that cover is credited to Joe Simon! Remember back in the 40's "Charles Nicholas" was a house name used by several artists at Fox Features Syndicate including Jack Kirby. Simon had said he met Kirby while Jack was working for Fox...makes me wonder if this cover played any role in that meeting? Something to think about, huh?
Now, enjoy the first story from 1940's "Blue Beetle" #3!
