January 1936: New Comics #3

Cover by Vin Sullivan
There's not a lot to say about this one, as it continues in much the same vein as the previous two issues.  But you know what, Steve Carson of 'Federal Men' is a fucking badass.  The guy jumps from one plane to another during an aerial dogfight, leaps onto the bad guy as he's trying to escape in a parachute, then beats the hell out of him as they float to the ground.  I don't know if it's just that I'm paying extra attention to Siegel and Shuster because they created Superman, but I feel like their work has an energetic vibe and a willingness to go balls-out crazy that the other adventure strips are missing.

Plus, the regular 'Stamps & Coins' segment of the text pieces has gone.  Two pages of purgatory down, eighteen to go!
