Green Hornet 15, 1943

This is one of those old golden age comics that contained a LOT of different features. This issue had:
  • "The Coins of Conscience" (10 pages)
    Featuring the Green Hornet and Jerry Robinson art.
  • "The Lady Colonel From Russia" (8 pages)
    Featuring the Spirit of '76 with Bob Powell story and art.
  • "Plans and Plants" (6 pages)
    Featuring the Zebra with Arthur Cazeneuve art.
  • "The Case of the Professor's Paralysis Ray" (6 pages)
    Featuring the Twinkle Twins.
  • Sissy the Lion in "The World's Biggest Fraidy Cat" (6 pages)
    The only appearance of Sissy the Lion and Col. Midge.
  • "The Seven-In-One Spy" (6 pages)
    Story and art by Art Helfant. Featuring Mighty Midgets versus the Nazis
  • "The Case of Liberty's Survival" (10 pages)
    Art by Jerry Robinson, featuring The Baron & the Nazis.
The cover is supposed to be by the late, great Alex Schomburg and it does look a lot like his style but I believe the cover art is NOT by Schomburg! I think it's another artist trying to copy Schomburg's style, and doing a pretty good job of it. But if you look closely there are some hints it's not Schomburg - the hands, the black background, the girl and other details just don't look right. And it's not signed. Schomburg normally wasn't shy about signing his work. Update -- I'm now about 98% sure the cover art is by Harvey Comics cover veteran Al Avison.

P.S. I no longer own this comic, it was sold in April 2003 for $69.
