And we're back! Well, actually, I'm writing this on 8/30, as I do all my posts a day in advance these days, but I assume I'm back and that I had a very restful time.
So, let's take another look at Pep Comics #20:
The Hangman was (dare I say it?) in full swing (get it?) by this time in Pep Comics, and was given who I think gives the Joker a run for sheer creep-factor: The Jackal.
