Notes

  • Atom Blake:
    • Atom Blake's ring is made of All-Elements Metal, constantly generating "Sunergy", developed by Stuart Blake.
    • Atom can run 100 yards in 3.4 seconds, high-jump 15 feet, and crush a small rock in his bare hand.
  • The Diamond Jack feature previously appeared in Slam-Bang Comics #1-7. This issue marks its final appearance.
    • Caption notes that Jack has returned to the U.S. from his prior adventure among the tombs of Egypt.
    • Premise: "Diamond Jack, in possession of a ring, given him by an old magician, becomes mentally and physically strong beyond mortal limits." The ring also can transmogrify a rampaging Vulture-man into a saguaro cactus, or a rabbit. It also can cast mirages, flash blinding light, or conjure a flaming sword out of mid-air.
    • "ADKHEL!" might be a magic word; Jack says it as he is using the ring to explosively destroy a dam.
    • Diamond Jack deliberately kills all of the Vulture-men, and Kruger their creator.
  • The Jim Dolan feature previously appeared in Slam-Bang Comics #1-7 and Nickel Comics #8.
  • The Lucky Lawton feature previously appeared in Slam-Bang Comics #1-7. This issue marks its final appearance.
  • In the Mister Scarlet feature, Miss Wade's first name is "Cherry." For almost three years, after this issue, she's never called anything but "Miss Wade", until Wow Comics #16, Aug 1943, when her name changes, without explanation, to "Donna Wade".
    • Brian Butler's love for Miss Wade is declared, and she also learns his secret identity.
    • In his first adventure, Mister Scarlet packs two full-size .45-cal hand guns, in military-style holsters, and makes nonlethal use of them in the story. After this issue, he packs only one gun, in a much smaller holster, and seldom if ever makes use of it.
    • Page 7, panel 7, Mr. Scarlet operates in Gotham City.
  • The Rick O'Shay feature previously appeared in Master Comics #1-6.
    • Mekki makes his last appearance in this story.
    • The Franconian Army in Central Africa looks exactly like the French Foreign Legion in North Africa.
    • At the end of this story, Rick promises Cambon that he and Mekki are going to revisit Fassar's base, and maybe they do, but that's not what happens in next issue's story, which is set in Egypt, at the Suez Canal.
  • The Shipwreck Roberts feature previously appeared in Master Comics #1-7. This issue marks its final appearance.
  • The White Rajah feature previously appeared in Master Comics #1-6 and Nickel Comics #8. This issue marks its final appearance.
    • The villain, Prince Ishmar, gets boiled alive by cannibals.
  • Also appearing in this issue of Wow Comics were:
    • "Puzzlettes"
    • "Who 'Da Thought It?"
    • "Our Strange Planet"
