December 1937: More Fun Comics #28

Cover by Vin Sullivan

'Sandra of the Secret Service' (by Will Ely) starts a new story, in which Sandra takes a cruise with her reporter friend Michael, and a wealthy debutante's jewelry goes missing.  Much like the 'Wing Brady' strip from More Fun Comics #27, it's mostly romance.

'Doctor Occult' (by Siegel and Shuster) fights vampires with the incredibly practical method of watching what grave they crawl out of, then waiting until daylight and staking the fuckers while they sleep. In defiance of all genre conventions, it goes without a hitch.  Of particular note is that one of the vampires is described as 'a bat-man', and all of them wear capes not entirely dissimilar from Batman the super-hero.
