Famous Funnies #15

The aviator genre in comics was often about nonfictional education as much as it was about the fictional characters.  Studying early comics, like this one, could help an Editor learn a lot about the specifics of planes he can later hand out as trophies in-game.  It's like Wikipedia, but with more drawings!

The arrival of a lion (statted in Hideouts & Hoodlums Book II: Mobsters & Trophies) may precipitate a series of morale saves, even if the lion is not acting overtly hostile.

Yes, that is meant to be Oliver Hardy in the first panel.  Do not shy away from using topical celebrities in a historical campaign.
