    There is a strange pleasure in reading comics this old. The humor, the story telling is so different now from what it used to be.

    Let's not beat around the bush. The stories were horrible, simplistic and often looked like they were written by primary schoolers. The art looked like it was done by that primary schooler's slightly older sibling. Compared to what we get with even bad comics today, there is no denying the low quality of this comic. Read this book for what it represents though, not because you are expecting an Allan Moore masterpiece. It gives us a glimpse into the USA before Nazi was the worst thing ever to exis Let's not beat around the bush. The stories were horrible, simplistic and often looked like they were written by primary schoolers. The art looked like it was done by that primary schooler's slightly older sibling. Compared to what we get with even bad comics today, there is no denying the low quality of this comic. Read this book for what it represents though, not because you are expecting an Allan Moore masterpiece. It gives us a glimpse into the USA before Nazi was the worst thing ever to exist (according to Americans). Instead, Chinatown and the yellow, big teethed, "ponytailed" Chinamen are the biggest threat in the world. In most of the stories, the "chinks" are the villains. In the stories where they are not racist towards Chinese people, they are saying things like "natives will kill you for a peso". Last note, in the mess that is this comic, I really liked the art for Buck Marshall, Range Detective. It is clear and to the point, but most of all, the artist seemed to be the only one in the whole book that definitely understood proportions. That, or he actually made an effort to draw frames more than once to get them right.
