Russell Cole does a few strips here under the pseudonym Alger. I'd noticed him over in More Fun Comics #9, but here his style is much more distinctive and enjoyable. I'll keep an eye on him, because he looks like one of the better cartoonists of the current DC crop.
There are lots of comings and goings with the strips at this time. 'Inch' (a standard kid shenanigans humour strip) makes its first and last appearance, as does the similar 'Chubby' (as you may have guessed, one of the kids is fat). An adaptation of 'A Tale of Two Cities' begins. 'Ol' Oz Bopp' and 'Goofo the Great' are new strips by the aforementioned Alger, and among the funnier ones. 'Jungle Boy' is a new strip in the vein of The Jungle Book. 'Slim and Tex' is a strip with cowboys vying over a girl. 'Maginnis of the Mounties' is new; he's a Mountie having adventures and stuff. 'Dale Daring' is also new, with a woman as the main character. Naturally she gets kidnapped, because that's what women do.
Among the casualties to get these new strips in are: 'Dare-Devil Dunk', 'Wing Walker', and a bunch of the text articles. Now I'll never know if Wing Walker rescued that girl from the Nipper!
Steve Carson isn't quite so badass in 'Federal Men' this month, but he does stab a dude with his own knife. That's what Steve Carson calls a slow day.
And just to put things into historical perspective, Errol Flynn is described in the movie section as a newcomer, having just starred in Captain Blood.
