Remember the interplanetary rocket that took off during the World's Fair of 1939?
But it occurred, because in 2000, this happened...
Wow, that's a helluva lot for only six pages in the back of Fox's Mystery Men Comics #1 (1939)!
Today, it'd be a four-issue mini-series!
Writer-artist Dick Briefer ended up creating a rather kool sci-fi character who became one of the longer-lasting strips of the Fox Comics line, lasting the entire run of Mystery Men Comics as well as his own one-shot title, and as one of the features in Victor Fox's proposed newspaper strip booklet (predating Will Eisner's Spirit inserts by a month or so in 1940).
We'll be running all of Rex's exploits over the next few months, so watch this blog...
