Comment: The first appearance of the durable Blue Beetle, looking quite different in a blue business suit, hat, and googles. Several other origins but nothing as historic as the Blue Beetle. I liked the art of Rex Dexter of Mars (also in his debut) and the rather rushed Mandrake clone, Zanzibar, (with a pair of Swiss Knife eyeballs able to shoot various kinds of rays) was fun. And the comic does, I think, offer one of the now common names for superheroes, ie mystery men. Several stories can be skimmed. There is also a text story by William E Eisner.
