Master Comics #89 Hopalong Cassidy (March 1948)

We will be taking an taking an Easter break for a couple of weeks. We will be back with more Captain Marvel Jr fun.

The Hypnotist's Spell! (Hopalong Cassidy)

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this story is the hypnotist villain is named Slim Pickens. Character actor Louis Burton Lindley, Jr. adopted "Slim Pickens" as a stage name and played in many westerns and other films from 1950 to 1981. This Hoppy story seems to predate the film career of the real Slim Pickens. This story could very well have been a story of most other B-western heroes of the period with only minor changes.
