We read Turn Loose Our Death Rays and Kill Them All: The Complete Works of Fletcher Hanks. Researched and edited by Paul Karasik.
Fletcher Hanks was the first great comic book auteur. That is, he wrote, penciled, inked, and lettered all of his own stories. He completed approximately 50 stories between 1939–1941. As a one-man-cartooning-band, his work packs the wallop of a unique and unified artistic vision. Whether it’s the superhero Stardust doling out ice cold slabs of poetic justice, or the jungle protectress Fantomah tearing evildoers from limb to ragged limb, contemporary readers are stunned by the pop surrealism and outright violent mayhem of Hanks’ work.
