"Pep Comics"

Pep Comics is the name of an American comic book anthology series published by MLJ Magazines Inc. during the 1930s and 1940s period known as the Golden Age of Comic Books.  The title continued under the Archie Comics imprint for a total of 411 issues until March 1987.  Pep Comics was the comics title that introduced the superhero character The Shield, the first of the super-patriotic heroes with a costume based on a national flag (pre-dating Captain America by over a year), The Comet, who was the first superhero to die, and Archie Andrews, who eventually became the main focus of the company's extensive range of publications.  Read them here.

Thanks Pappy,
