Master Comics #78 (April 1947- Bulletman)
Perhaps the main importance of this story is that Bulletgirl becomes the star of the show by rescuing Bulletman. The premise that Bulletman and Bulletgirl coming to the same conclusion about the street repair and the steamroller isn't too far fetched as husband and wives often think the same things (albeit Jim and Susan are not yet married but are partners nonetheless). Perhaps the major problem has to do with them not confiding their suspicions with one another. The artwork is very simple yet tells the story very well. The use of perspective is employed the effectively through the story. The comment by Jim on page one regarding the Hopalong Cassidy movie is a good reminder to the reader of Hoppy's Fawcett comic book adventures as well as his B movie Westerns.
