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"
"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!
