Synopsis for "The Clock Strikes!"

The mysterious figure known as "the Clock" receives an airmail letter from the even more mysterious person "the Orchid" urging him to fly to Detroit at once, so he jumps into his two-seat open-cockpit armed biplane and does so. Four hours later he arrives over Detroit and searches for the clues described in the Orchid's cryptically-phrased letter, and isn't finding them, when another two-seat open-cockpit armed biplane soars in and fires at him with machine guns. The Clock makes a tight banking turn and gets behind the attacking plane then rakes it with fire from his own machine gun. The attacking plane is disabled and the pilot is killed, the machine-gunner bails out; the Clock shoots at the parachutist until he hits the ground, wounded but alive. It's evening now, and the light is bad, but the Orchid signals the Clock by flashing an orchid-colored light, and by the light of the flaming badguy plane, he safely lands. The Orchid explains in detail the extortion scheme of the bad guys and the entire progress of her investigation so far. The Clock interrogates the wounded machinegunner, who does some detailed squealing, then ties him up and leaves him behind. Clock and Orchid go to an old shack where the loot and one hostage are; Orchid stays outside in her open-top roadster while the Clock goes inside, and gets ambushed by the gang's boss, who is just about to shoot the Clock when he's nonfatally shot by the Orchid. The Clock then beats the hell out of the wounded boss, while the Orchid frees the hostage. The Clock steals the ransom money and the Orchid's car, leaving behind a mocking written note for the Orchid.

Notes

  • The Clock Strikes!:
    • This is the first appearance of The Clock at Quality Comics; the character had previously been appearing in comics published by Comics Magazine/Centaur Comics. Quality apparently bought the character from Centaur. It is unclear if the Clock's earlier adventures are supposed to be in continuity, or if this is a reboot.
    • The Clock and the Orchid have already met prior to this issue's story. She apparently knows his mailing address, and therefore his real identity. He knows nearly nothing about her. The reader knows nearly nothing about him; his name and home city are not revealed in this story.

Trivia

  • The Clock's secret identity as Brian O'Brien was also not revealed in any of the character's nine appearances, published in four different anthology comic books (Comics Magazine, Detective Picture Stories, Funny Pages, and Funny Picture Stories), by Centaur Comics.
