National Comics was a successful series for Quality, running 75 issues from July 1940 – December 1949.
Cover art for National Comics #6* (December 1940) is by the highly collected Lou Fine featuring Quality Publishing mainstay superheroes Uncle Sam and Quicksilver.
It was a bit of a surprise purchase for me. If you can look past the “chew” in the bottom right you might also notice a motorcycle! Yep, had to add another comic book to the collection.
The first inside story “Sabotage” by Will Eisner (shown on the left) strikes an eerie resemblance to 9-11, yet it was drawn over sixty years earlier.
Other inside characters include the highly competent and self-sufficient Sally O’Neil Policewoman and yet another “Red, White and Blue” superhero known as Wonder Boy.
