Heroic 35, 1946
Beware the Ferocious Giant Panda! Boy, it's really hard not to laugh. Did they just have no idea what a panda looked like back then?? Or were the pointy ears just artistic license taken in a desperate attempt to make the panda look menacing?? I think the only creature more terrifying than a ferocious giant panda would be the fearsome koala bear, terror of the Australian outback!
Like it's title, the theme of this comic is heroic feats; other features include tales of courageous fire-fighters, switchboard operators, traffic cops, soldiers, and even "VitaMAN - the boy with the B-1 complex"!!! The traffic cop story has nice artwork by Alex Toth and there's really great uncredited artwork on the story that "profiles" the characterists of a Japanese soldier. (Going by what the comic teaches, Japanese soldiers are slow-witted cowards who favor sneak attacks from behind.)
