Mike is back with another episode of 1930s comic book fun. Explore the dawn of the comic book era before the landscape became littered with super-heroes. This time out, Mike talks about DC’s very first licensed property, DC’s first multi-media spinoff (maybe?), and a Dr. Fu Manchu ripoff.

Here’s some reference material to wet your whistle:
