"Mickey Finn": (newspaper strip reprints)


Quote1 That diamond was your undoing, Charley. It's a stone with a hole in the center, connected by a rubber tube to a small bulb containing tear gas. The bulb is concealed under my arm, and with a little pressure ... well, you know the rest. Now get up. Quote2
-- The Clock

Notes

  • Inside front cover is an advertisement for "Candy", featuring Joe Palooka, Lala & Vincent Palooza, Jane Arden, and Mickey Finn. It's not for any particular brand of candy.
  • Archie O'Toole: Gil O. Teen's hench-villain, "Spider", used to be a female impersonator, but is trying to forget about that part of his life.
  • The Clock claims to rarely carry a gun, but he says this in the process of duping a villain.
    • At the end of the story, he does have a gun.
    • Although he typically steals the loot from the crimes that he solves, and gives it to charities, this time The Clock returns all of it, because it was stolen from a charity.
    • His real identity is not named in this story.
  • After this issue, Hawks Of The Seas jumps to another publisher, and is next seen that same month, in Jumbo Comics #1, Sep 1938, published by Fiction House.
