Bring on the Back-ups: "The Man with an Inbuilt Panic Button!" by Fox, Kubert, and Anderson

Who wouldn't love a forgotten fable featuring our favorite feathered hero Hawkman by the dream-team of Gardner Fox, Joe Kubert, and Murphy Anderson? Here's "The Man with an Inbuilt Panic Button" from Atom and Hawkman #40 (September 1968), Groove-ophiles!


  1. Thank you, Groove--but is there any chance that you could post the second page of the story?

  2. As far as I can tell, there is no second page--weird, huh? Methinks whoever lettered it boo-booed, 'cause page 3 certainly reads like it should be page 2...

    Either that or someone's swiping single pages from my DC mags. Sheesh!

  3. Well, I can't vouch for the integrity of your DC collection, but GCD lists the story as a 9-pager. Maybe it's not your collection but your hardrive? :-) Seriously, though, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for all the groovy reading that you've posted over the years. You're my first internet stop every day.
