Daring Mystery Comics #8 - Cover

DARING MYSTERY COMICS #8, 1942. You gotta feel for Blue Diamond. Right there on the cover, but grouped in with "and others" in the blurb, which names the other guys, and even the gal in the inset.

Anyway, a book of the also-rans of the early Marvel line, the highlight of most of these guys careers has to be having Jack Kirby draw them on a cover just before he left Marvel the first time.

Was there any S & K work on the interior of this book? Any artists of note?

The Fin was created by Bill Everett and is completely awesome. I wrote about one of his stories (reprinted in a Golden Age Of Marvel Comics book) here.

The cover is the only S&K in this issue, although they did some stories (Marvel Boy, Fiery Mask) in earlier issues of DARING MYSTERY.

I'd forgotten that the Fin was Everett. I did like that reprint. You have to like it when a hero threatens to "cut your heart out and stuff it down your throat".
