Reading Room: SAGAS OF THE SEA "Titanic"

With the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic coming up...
...we thought it appropriate to present one of the surprisingly-few comic book versions of the sad tale of the "unsinkable" super-ship!
This tale from Seven Seas Comics #2 (1946), illustrated by Robert Webb, is derived from newspaper accounts of the disaster.
Seven Seas Comics was the longest-lasting of Leader Publications/Universal Phoenix Features' titles, publishing six issues of high-quality work by such notables as Matt Baker, Alex Blum, and a pre-EC Comics Al Feldstein!
The main feature was South Seas Girl, a jungle-girl strip featuring superb Good Girl art by Baker!
Robert Webb is best-known as one of the primary artists on the long-running Sheena: Queen of the Jungle for Fiction House.
