Master Comics #126 (February 1952- The Panther Man)

 Happy New Year

This is a story of revenge. It is difficult not to have some sympathy for Panther Man who is on a mission of vengeance. He is after the hunters who killed the Panther Queen (perhaps his mate). Apparently the Panther Man is some strange human/panther hybrid. The issue of justice is somewhat muddled at the end. CapJr comments, "Since he's only partly human, I don't know what the authorities are going to do about him. I do know, they'll mete out the right kind of justice!" Art by Sheldon Moldoff. GCD has Bill Ward as artist.
(Sorry don't have the covers to this comic.)

  1. Later on, the Panther Man made a second appearance, and he died. If the story had appeared in more modern times, he'd have been handled more sympathetically.
