Famous Funnies #36
Change People into Animals sounds powerful, particularly if it affects a group of people. I would make it a 5th level spell, limit it to 1 target per level of the spell caster, and make the effect last maybe 2d6 hours.
A doctor's house call cost $50 in the 1930s!
This one might be a bit of a stretch, but since witchcraft and taming snakes is mentioned in the same caption, we might have the first instance of the spell Snake Charm in comics here.
History hasn't born this out, but the Flight author seemed quite convinced here that "roadable gyros" were going to become a legitimate thing soon. Of course, cars that can transform into planes and vice versa have long been staples of comic books; so much so that I just posted about it yesterday.
