ZAMBINI, The Miracle Man battles Satan!

The spookiness continues!!

Well, if you don't consider a magician to be a super hero, we may have a problem. But you'll get over it. I do think that they are, since they have special powers and fight evil. And, hey, Zatanna runs with the JLA!! So there!

Here we have Zambini, the Miracle Man, who first appeared in ZIP COMICS #1 (February 1940) and ran all the way through issue #35 (March 1943). I love his "magic speak." It's just so Ubbi Dubbi!

In this tale he battles his arch-enemy Satan! And what could be more Halloween-ish than the devil, eh?

  1. That sure is a lot of red ink!

  2. Well, the story does take place in hell...what color should it be!?
    LOL, but you're right, I noticed that too.

  3. I had to do a double-take because at first I thought the guy's name was ZAMBONI. I think I need coffee ...

  4. He killed Satan! How do you top that?
