The Secret Origin of BOY KING!

Presenting the origin of BOY KING and the GIANT from CLUE COMICS #1 (Jan 1943).

Isn't his costume...festive?

Page 2 of the story proclaims that "the people of Swisslakia were light-hearted and gay..." And you may think that gay is used as a colloquialism of the day, like "they were happy." But when you get to page 11 and see the attention to detail that the Swisslakian sculptors put into the Giant's, um...below-the-belt may start to suspect otherwise. Enjoy!

You can find CLUE COMICS #1
and many more apparent public domain comics at
