MASKED MARVEL "Beasts of Horror"

We end October as we began, with the hero who looks like a Dia de los Muertros sugar skull...
...in his final, never-reprinted appearance in Youthful's GunSmoke #16 (1952)!
Most of the time, the Masked Marvel, like the Ghost Rider, faced threats that appeared supernatural, but actually were people pretending to be ghosts or monsters, like the heroes themselves.
The writer is unknown, but the artist is Tony Tallarico, who went on to co-create Lobo, comics' first Black cowboy (and the first Black character to get his own comic book) in 1966!
