He Ain't Messin'

Sunday Quick Fix.

When I was preparing this post I was struck by the fact how much more exciting these Johnny Quick stories were than every else in Adventure Comics. Superboy seems to have been kept purposedly dull, The Green Arrow by George Papp remains earthbound, Paul Reinman's Aquaman doesn't have any of Reinman's later excitement (in the fifties, before he dulled down again in the sixties), Shining Knight was no beacon, etc. The Johnny Quick splash alone is worth the entrance fee.

Haha, that was a great one, villains are far over-rated.
Circumstance works for me!

I'd never seen a Johnny Quick story until your posts. Now I'm thoroughly hooked! More Meskin!
