New Adventure Comics #13

Not much to discuss in this issue of New Adventure Comics.

Sandor discovers the ol' 'opening the door causes a pit trap to open in front of it' trick!  I'm not going to bother showing you the next page, as the scene ends abruptly, but the pit opens into a dungeon where a jailer rushes to slap cuffs on you while you're lying there.

Quite dynamic art on this minor piece. Baslyn has to bribe the train crew with just $5 to let him ride in the baggage car, perhaps because of an effort in the '30s to clamp down on hobos? I daresay a ticket would have been cheaper.

A rare instance of bad guys desecrating a temple -- in the non-PC comics of the Golden Age, Heroes could justify desecrating another culture's holy sites for any excuse, like "Think of all the war bonds I could buy with these rubies!"  Of course, the relevance of this to your Hideouts & Hoodlums campaigns depends on your racism filters.
