Reading Room BLACK CAT MYSTIC "Woman Who Discovered America 67 Years Before Columbus!"

From Harvey's Black Cat Mystic #60 (1957)...
...comes a Joe Simon/Jack Kirby tale that may have been created for Simon & Kirby's Strange World of Your Dreams, but not used until years later!
Prize's Strange World of your Dreams only ran for four issues.
Several stories planned for the fifth issue ran in Prize's Black Magic after SWoYD was cancelled.
But S&K left Prize and took any unused material with them, so this could be another tale meant for SWoYD #5!
BTW, I was unable to find any record of an actual Marina Dorotea De Vargas, so it's safe to presume this is an entirely-fictional tale.

Trump Reading Room BABE "and the Chicago Crushers Football Team..." Conclusion

...she was demonstrating her proficency on the gridiron!
One of writer/artist Boody Rogers' wildest creations, Babe: the Darling of the Hills, was another hillbilly series "inspired" by the phenomenal success of Al Capp's Li'l Abner!
Babe Boone derived her abilities from "lightning juice" which was fermented from the bark of trees struck by lightning!
The series ran 11 issues.
When it and Rogers' other series, Sparky Watts, were cancelled, Boody retired from commercial art and comics, opening a pair of art supply stores!

Reading Room SPACE SQUADRON "World of No Return"

Buckle up your jetpacks...
...as we hurtle back to the year 2000 (as seen from the year 1951!)...
This never-reprinted tale from Atlas' Space Squadron #2 (1951) is typical of the early 1950s, when sci-fi was dominiated by various military and police organizations patrolling and controlling the universe, much as America was patrolling and controlling the non-Commie-controlled parts of Earth.
As in many ongoing series (no matter what the genre), the evil progeny (Edgar Revere) of a great man (Blast Revere) was never revealed as the schemer behind most of their problems!
Neither the writer nor artist are known.
See the other Captain Jet Dixon of the Space Squadron tales we've presented HERE!
And keep watching, as we finish our re-presentation of this time-lost series before the end of the year!

Reading Room EVERY DAY IS A HOLLY DAY "Columbus Day"

It used to be October 12th...
...but now it's the second Monday in October, to allow people a three-day holiday!
Interestingly, this page from Brevity Inc's one-shot giveaway Every Day is a Holly Day (1956) acknowledges Christopher Columbus didn't discover America, a rarity in that era!
Why is this comic entitled "Every Day is a Holly Day" instead of "Every Day is a Holiday"?
Because it was given away to kids by grocers who sold Holly Sugar!
Illustrated by John Rosenberger, it's a unique pamphlet covering a number of American holidays, including both Lincoln and Washington's Birthdays (before they were combined into "Presidents' Day"), Mothers' Day (though not Fathers' Day), Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and a couple of holidays we've largely abandoned...Pan-American Day and American Indian Day!
We'll be presenting the other chapters on the dates they fall upon.
Watch for them!
