Star Spangled Comics #40 - Cover

STAR SPANGLED COMICS #40, 1945. Boy, is that a complicated flying machine for robbing a bank. If it actually works, you could sell the patent for more than a bank robbery would haul in, and not get beat up by a bunch of kids and a moonlighting cop.

It's a nice cover, but how much Kirby is in it? Big Words and Tommy especially look as if they may have been swiped and composed in. More Simon than Kirby, perhaps?

Dude, that thing is an autogyro:

And yes, they actually worked.

Didn't The Shadow had an Autogyro?
