Synopsis for Bulletman: "The Fight To Rescue Tanner"

Jim Barr at the last minute develops the forensic evidence that re-solves a cold case, and Bulletman the Modern Robin Hood of Crime saves an innocent man, Tanner, from the electric chair, in a tense race against time ending in a violent wall-busting electric-chair escape. Bulletman also exposes an impostor who has been posing as Mayor Scott. (Tanner the frame-up victim is a plastic surgeon who turned a mob boss into a lookalike of Mayor Scott.)
--- Bulletman and the gangsters spend four pages setting improbable and unworkable traps for each other, then he beats them all up and then gets frozen into a large coffin-shaped block of ice then busts out of that then rescues Tanner again, this time from getting cooked to death on a coal-furnace. Bulletman and his rescue-ee both dodge a ton of bullets in a really small room for two panels before leaving.

  • Bulletman has telescopic vision, and super-keen hearing, the captions say so.
  • Susan Kent gets briefly kidnapped, for the 2nd time.
  • At one point, Bulletman abducts a radio announcer right off the street, and flies him up to the scary-high clocktower, to provide broadcast commentary while he's forcibly extracting an "or-else" confession from the main bad guy. At another point, Bulletman has the right paperwork to free Tanner but STILL has to break into the prison and smash his way out of it, because of a telephone problem.

Synopsis for Warlock the Wizard: "The Red Diamond"

Warlock the Wizard takes on Mr Trenk, a kindly crippled old philanthropist, dba "the Trenk Foundation," who secretly is hypnotizing millionaires and getting them to write him into their wills then jump from high places. How? He has a red diamond, torn from a Hindu idol, whose rays throw you into a hypnotic trance, even W.t.W. Warlock does use his magical Golden Hand to spank a badguy, as had to happen sooner or later. W.t.W. gets captured by the bad guys with a knockout-gas-rigged taxicab, but they're too stupid to take away his Golden Hand, so one page later they're all busted.
