365 Days of Defiance, Day 315: A Man Called Smith

As we saw back in August, the extremely short-lived comic Captain Fearless series was great fodder for scenes of defiance against evil and tyranny. It had ten, count 'em, ten different comic stories of action, adventure, and (um) fearlessness, and here's another one, starring the sure-to-be-one-of-the-biggest-hit-characters of the Golden Age, Citizen Smith! (You may have visited Planet Hollywood and saw on display the smith from Citizen Smith.) Please note the publication date: it was on the newsstands more than six months before Pearl Harbor!

Panels from the Citizen Smith story in Captain Fearless Comics #2 (Temerson/Helnit/Continental, September 1941), pencils by Irwin Hasen (?)
