    Stories and art by Bob Kanigher and Louis Ferstadt (both credited as Lew Howe), Ted Small, and Pat Regan (probably house pseudonyms). Cover by E. C. Stoner. One of the stranger superheroes, Greek deity Antaeus - who can bounce whenever hurled to the ground - appears when summoned by his modern-day descendant, a neurotic artist. The Bouncer has the distinction of being the first character created by comics legend Robert Kanigher - as well as appearing in both Scott Shaw!'s Oddball Comics and The League of Regrettable Superheroes. Numbering on the series apparently continues from Green Mask Vol. 1 (1940) #9, although this is murky because there was also a Green Mask Vol. 1 (1940) #10, and this issue of Bouncer was not numbered. The Bouncer protects a graveyard from gangsters; Air ace Rocket Kelly battles mad scientist Dr. Malik over the atom world of Selura; The Bouncer faces a foe almost as odd as he is, the absurd Gold Bug. Also featuring an ad for US war bonds. Adventure of the Uneasy Graveyard; One Round Hogan; The Joy Family; Rocket Kelly: It Happened to Me; Rocket Kelly: Atom World of Selura; Loop O'Day: The Fainting Star; A New Kind of Adversary!; Here 'N There; Minit Mystery. 48 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
