The next day Jake made an unsolicited and detailed confession to his good friend "Snowy" Winters (secretly The Clock), who then gave Jake some bad advice, went home and changed clothes, returned to Jake's place in his tuxedo and mask, beat up Jake, tied up Jake, and visited Tony Malta. The Clock pulled out a gun and shot a knife out of Tony's hand, then put away his gun, and beat up Tony manually.

Synopsis for Espionage Starring Black X: "Count Rokk"

Circa probably 1937-Nov: Black X's boss Major Murdock is personally assigned this next mission by FDR. A foreign so-called "pirate" submarine has sunk 3 U.S. ships (and later sinks a 4th and almost sinks a 5th), presumably in an attempt to draw the U.S. into the oncoming worldwide war, and the Espionage agency must discreetly settle this problem. Black X dba Mr Smith visits the NYC office of Joshua Hawkins at the Acme Export Co to urge him to suspend shipping operations to the war zone; Hawkins refuses, based on his rights as a U.S. citizen; X claims to recognize Hawkins as non-American-citizen Count Rokk, and to have met him in Singapore earlier, then jumps him and yanks off his wig and fake beard, but Rokk pulls a gun, and they go for a walk, thru a secret panel to a stairway under the docks, where we meet Max, the captain of the "pirate" U-boat. Black X makes his move, Count Rokk is shot dead by Captain Max who is shot dead by Black X. The bad guys have been sinking cargoless old scrap ships, after evacuating their hench-crews; Black X has worked out where their next strike (on the SS Rusitania) will be, flies there in a private airplane (a very NON-dive-bomber-looking private plane at that), bombs the sub and sinks it, presumably with all hands. Story wraps up "in a fashionable restaurant in Washington," where Murdock and Black X recap events.

Notes

  • Archie O'Toole, page 2, panel 5: "... I smoke Hemp's Cigars, I smoke Weed's Cigarettes ..."
  • The Clock's long-time habit of leaving calling cards and witty notes at crime scenes and on arrested suspects backfired on him at least four times in his career,[1][2][3][4] as various criminals simply had fake "Clock" calling cards printed up, and left them at assorted crime scenes. The late Silk Basso was the first to try this stunt, Tony and Jake here are the second.
  • Espionage: In the first episode of this series, Feature #13, Black X's boss was named Major Gale; in the second episode, Feature #14, he was not named but only identified as Black X's superior officer; in this third episode, he's called Major Murdock. The guy looks exactly the same. These espionage agents use a lot of fake identities, so who knows what his real name is?

Trivia

  • Will Eisner signed his Espionage stories as "Will Erwin" and his Archie O'Toole stories as "Bud Thomas".
