Zip Comics #17: The End of the Scarlet Avenger, Up for Auction

MLJ Magazines was a great example of how the Scarlet Avenger era evolved, giving the character the Golden Age debut, resulting in Wilbur Wilkin being adopted as a teenager. A condition: FR/GD is up for auction at Heritage Auctions on 2022 May 15-16 Sunday & Monday.

The Scarlet Avenger was created by Harry Shorten and Irv Novick and has since become a comics icon. A giant scientific brain is behind Kendall''s stony face. It''s been revealed that an airplane that was carrying a gold bullion was turned on, and all occupants except Jim himself were killed. In the accident, his face was paralyzed, and Jim is now the man who smiles.

MLJ ended a pulp-style character to make place for teen humor character Wilbur Wilkins in the title an adept move that served the publisher well. It''s a surprisingly tough issue of the title, and there''s Zip Comics #122220 on Heritage Auctions on Saturday & Monday.
