Popular Comics #9
A rare slow issue of Popular Comics, today I'll only point out this page of Don Winslow U.S.N. and the unusually multi-classed Explorer/Scientist villain, Doctor Q. How do I know he's two classes? Sometimes all we have to work with on statting a comic character is certain tells; certain tropes associated with character type. Here, just the way he's dressed tells me Dr. Q is an Explorer, while previous installments had amply demonstrated that he was a Mad Scientist-type.
Dr. Q here refers to a drug he calls Voodox, which is likely a Potion of Human Control.
