Did You Know...

Did you know that in Whiz Comics #87 (published May 9, 1947) both the wizard Shazam and Captain Marvel had to end a quarrel among the gods?

It turns out that Mars, the god of war, had sneaked into Mount Olympia and was giving some of the gods (Zeus and Mercury) his nectar of evil!  This caused them to quarrel and fight among themselves.  Mars' malicious plot is uncovered and Shazam banishes him to the nether realms!

Comic of the Week - Captain Marvel Adventures #1

The Captain Marvel comic of the week is Captain Marvel Adventures #1!  This was Captain Marvel's stand-alone comic and went on sale January 17, 1941 (about a year after Cap premiered in Whiz Comics.).  Remember that in Whiz Comics, there is one Cap story followed by stories of other heroes like Ibis, Golden Arrow, etc.  But in the pages of Captain Marvel Adventures, all the stories feature Captain Marvel!

Captain Marvel Adventures #1 featured the following stories:

"Captain Marvel vs Z"

"Out West"

"The Monsters of Saturn"

"Captain Marvel Battles The Vampire"

It's interesting to note that Jack Kirby was the artist for each of these Captain Marvel Adventures!
