Detective 121 - Commissioner Gordon gets demoted

A generic Batman and Robin cover for Detective 121 (March 1947).  I guess they didn’t think Commissioner Gordon was cover-worthy.

He does get to be the centre of the story in this issue, drawn by Howard Sherman.  105 more words

More Fun 85 - Dr. Fate gets his degree, Aquaman gets hot, and Johnny Quick gets multiple images

Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman bill this story from More Fun 85 (Nov 42) as the “New” Dr. Fate, and there are some changes to the character, though none as castrating as those which have already occurred. 427 more words
