Synopsis for The Clock: "Framing the Clock"

Escaped museum robbers Tony Malta and Jake tried to frame The Clock for the murder of Stanford Pell the playboy. This was attempted at least once, earlier (see Feature Funnies #11 Aug 1938) and again, fake copies of The Clock's calling cards are used. The next day Jake makes an unsolicited and detailed confession to his good friend "Snowy" Winters (secretly The Clock), who then gives Jake some bad advice, goes home and changes clothes, returns to Jake's place in his tuxedo and mask, beats up Jake, ties up Jake, visits Tony Malta, pulls out a gun and shoots a knife out of Tony's hand, puts away his gun, and beats up Tony.

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

  • Black X's boss used to be Major Gale; now it's Major Murdock. These espionage agents use a lot of fake identities, so who knows what his real name is?
