Today in Comics History, August 5, 1912 : Just when you were tired of those Dracula diary panels, here's Cap

from "The Spawn of the Witch Queen" in Captain America Comics #20 (Marvel/Timely, November 1942), pencils and inks by Al Avison (?)

Now that classic Cap villain Mr. Weird Puss is so huge in the Marvel mythos, it's fun to see where he got his start. (Actually, I'm wondering if this guy inspired Roy Thomas to create Baron Blood.)

AKA "That time Cap and Bucky were squzzed to death by a giant snek":

This can't be the end!

Well, yeah, it kinda is.

(Until August 12.)
