A nice Deadman cover on Action 619, though not reflective of the look of the series at this point.

Green Lantern, and the reader, finally get to see Veronica Hawkes face forward in this story, by David, Howell and Starr.  Hal does determine that the Freakshow is made up of former employees, but Veronica is an unhelpful as she could possibly be.

As Green Lantern continues to fight the group of villains, Arisia runs out of patience, waiting for him to get back.  Maybe she shouldn’t have refused to talk to him when he was there.

Richard Rockwell does the pencils on this Wild Dog chapter, while Collins and Nyberg continue to script and ink.  The story has to do with a mad shooter in a fast food restaurant.

Wild Dog gets there, but so does Wild Pup, jumping right at the killer.

Baron, Jones and DeZuniga give Deadman a hard time in this chapter, as the voodoo priest traps the ghost in the body of a zombie, and sends him out to kill a rival voodoo master, Madame Waxahachie.

She is a great character, and a strong adversary for the other priest.  She is not scared of zombies, and breaks the fingers of the body Deadman is controlling.

Marty Pasko returns with the Secret Six, but the art is now by Frank Springer and Frank McLaughlin.  I had really wanted to enjoy this series, but the first run was confusingly told, with some undeniable weaknesses.   I don’t think the strip was suited to this weekly eight-page format.  But the change in art was not any improvement at all, it removed the feel of the series, and made the characters far less interesting to look at.

The story resumes the plot of the contaminated pork products.

Blackhawk and his crew are captured by the same man who is holding the aviatrix, in this chapter by Pasko and Burchett.

It’s not too much of a surprise that the man who hired the team has been lying, but Janos is shocked to discover that Chuck is part of the OSS.
