Houdini Reading Room REAL FACT COMICS "Master of Mystery"

...we thought we'd take a look at how he's been portrayed in comics.
Here's his second solo appearance (after cameos in strips like Kid Eternity) in a never-reprinted feature from DC's Real Fact Comics #1 (1946).
Note: Houdini's first appearance is in the ultra-rare Rural House's Mask Comics #1.
But the only known surviving copies are "slabbed" in plastic cases to increase their resale value, so we may never see that story ever again.
While the writer is unknown, the artist is Dick Sprang, best-known for his decades of work on comics' most famous escape artist, The Batman!
