Synopsis for Espionage: "The Coming of Black X"

On Sunday evening 23 December (probably 1934) the impeccably dapper, monocle-wearing, well-known criminologist Richard Spencer faked his own death in an airliner crash, and began his espionage career as "The Black X." Over the next few days he played cat-&-mouse with a small gang of spies, and handily defeated them. Along the way he met a monocled enemy spy, also with no real name, who (except for a facial scar) looked just like himself; this guy escaped by diving off the SS Barontaria near Ellis Island. In the end Black X successfully destroyed a compromised set of "plans for the floating air base."

Synopsis for The Clock Strikes: "The Z. Y. Callis Case"

In a wage dispute, manufacturing plant owner Z. Y. Callis closes his factory on payday. According to a radio news story, the cash payroll was in the factory. According to the Clock's files, Callis has a shady background of income tax evasion and embezzlement. The Clock visits the closed factory and prepares to break in. If there are guards, the reader never sees them. Still, another guy is in there ahead of the Clock, so he abandons his old plan, and shadows this guy, back to the poorest neighborhood in the city, watches him go inside, then bursts into his unlocked house right behind him, and points a gun at him. (The Clock rarely carries a gun, but not never.) This guy turns out to be one of the 1800 displaced workers from the factory closing, and needed money for medicine and baby food. The Clock persuades this guy to hand over the entire payroll minus only his own wages. The Clock then returns to the factory, again encountering no security guards, breaks into the office safe, returns the cash payroll, finds two sets of ledgers, then telephones Z. Y. Callis from the factory office, to shake him down.

The next day, Callis' factory reopens, with a 20% raise and a 40-hour workweek.

Notes

  • Black X:
    • 1934 had Dec 23rd fall on a Sunday. This story is essentially a flashback to Black X's origin, which is necessarily several years earlier than the issue's cover date.
    • This story, like almost every Black X story, ends with Black X and Major Gale comparing notes at a fashionable cafe in Washington DC.

Trivia

  • No trivia.
