Race Wilkins in "Ride That Nightmare" (August Froehlich, 1945)

Red Band Comics #3 (Rural Home, 1945)
Art by August Froehlich

Froehlich moved from illustrating film posters and magazines to comic books in the 1940's. A polished artist out of the Alex Raymond school he is best noted for drawing The Ghost in Thrilling Comics, Firehair in Rangers Comics, Auro, Lord of Jupiter in Planet Comics, and Simba in Jungle Comics. More info on him at Lambiek.net

Race Wilkins only made two appearances that I'm aware of in what was set up to be an on-going epic adventure. These stories could easily be the plot for the next Brandon Frasier movie.


Part 2 will be posted very soon.
