Synopsis for Doll Man: "The Puritan Village"

A midnight high-speed car chase, punctuated by one-sided gunfire, draws Darrel Dane and Professor Roberts through the hills and up the side of a mountain, in pursuit of four very well-armed gangsters. Suddenly an avalanche sends both cars crashing into smoking wreckage. Three of the four thugs escape alive from their car, unable to bring their loot with them, miles from the nearest town, they very luckily find a small cave opening in the mountainside, and scramble inside. The cave leads to a long, dark tunnel, at the end of which is a wide-open countryside, with pine trees on the hills in the background and log cabins up close; it's a 17th-century Puritan-style village, and the menfolk carry blunderbusses. These are low-tech, guileless, country folk, who also wear expensive rings and other jewelery, in a distinctly un-Puritanical manner. They invite the hoods to stay as long as they like. The hoods go on a murderous robbing spree.
-- In the other smashed car, (and using no visible pill or potion), Darrel gets small and starts tossing big rocks around, pulls unconscious Prof. out of the car, then gets big again. Once Roberts is conscious and seated safely off the road, Dane again gets small and sprints off in pursuit of the crooks. He runs ten miles up the road, passing the cave, but then doubles back and checks out the cave.
-- One Puritan girl, in a shoulderless ballroom gown and long gloves, carrying a sack of gold and jewels, is rescued from a corrupted bully, a hireling of the three gangsters, when Doll Man shows up and punches this lout out. Already a barrel full of wedding rings and other jewelery has been accumulated. In another room of the same cabin, Doll Man finds the three robbers, plus one more corrupted local henchman; they try to shoot him but are just not quick enough; he's got them all four of them punched out in short order. Doll Man recruits the local schoolteacher to help redistribute the stolen loot. The five bad guys end up in pillories, in the village square, facing life sentences as pronounced by the schoolteacher.

Synopsis for Zero, Ghost Detective: "The Haunted Night Club"

In the "Moon Glow Room" atop the Belle Plaza Hotel, as the MC is introducing the featured singer, a ghostly figure attired in top hat and tails rises above the MC, who gradually disappears and is replaced by the ghost, who then introduces a new show, "The Ghost Show." Despite the club manager's panicky fears, the show is a great hit, returning night after night, and soon, at the famous ghost detective's laboratory, his girlfriend is lobbying him to take her out to see it. But despite his press agent's glib reassurances, the manager knows that something is wrong; for one thing, the show's not costing him any money. One night soon, Zero and his date take in this show; Zero identifies the ghost performers as being actual ghosts, and goes to discuss this with the manager. He leaves the room just as wealthy playboy Tommy Manners arrives with his date; Tommy is soon attacked by the ghost-possessed MC, and flees, crashing headlong through an outer porch window. Zero overtakes him, preventing a long drop to the street, then pulls out a mirror, marked with an X-shaped cross on it, and flashes it at the ghost. Zero marches the ghost and Tommy onto the stage; the ghost takes the microphone and identifies itself as Tommy Manners' late brother, accuses Tommy of having murdered him. Three girl ghosts sneak up behind Zero and grab him; he drops the mirror; Tommy's brother's ghost grabs and strangles Tommy. Zero pulls out "a sulpherous match" and lights it; this blinds all of the ghosts, and makes them vanish. Zero takes the mike to announce the end of the final performance of "the Ghost Show," and as the audience is applauding, he lifts the dead body of Tommy and carries it out of the room.

Notes

  • In the "Zero, Ghost Detective" story, Zero's lovely brunette date is not named, but she looks very much like Jane Darwell, from Feature Comics #36.
  • Bruce Blackburn assumes his superhero identity as the Destroying Demon (AKA the Destroying Devil) in this issue. Blackburn does not become a full-time super-hero -- he just uses the costumed identity occasionally, when it is right for the case.

Trivia

  • No trivia.
