Captain Action #3

From February/March 1969 comes issue #3 of DC's fondly recalled adaptation of Ideal's seminal super hero action figure line Captain Action. CA was the first real super hero line, offering kids costumes of their favorite heroes from both DC and Marvel to put on their Captain Action figure. Besides the super heroes, they also offered Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and The Green Hornet costumes as well. The comic series was a well conceived book that unfortunately only lasted 5 issues. The sales weren't that good and DC pulled the plug almost immediately. This great Gil Kane cover was typical of the high quality of the art in this book. Gil also wrote this particular story, introducing the villain from the toy line Dr. Evil to the comic series. This is a fun series that's well worth checking out.
