Introduction to Bungleton Green and The Mystic Commandos

… But it was a fourth series, in late 1942, that marked an even more radical turn in comics’ contribution to the war effort. In Bungleton Green and the Mystic Commandos, Jay Jackson offered his readers a science-fiction epic that imagined that victory against the Nazis would also mark the beginning of a victory over global white supremacy, with the war effort necessitating an end to Jim Crow in the United States and the emergence of a country that had finally achieved equality for all its citizens.

  1. And what women there are usually take over legacy strips and drastically change them, like Jules Rivera and Olivia Jaimes. The syndicate should just let those women develop their own strips, and let Nancy and Mark Trail go into a well-earned retirement. I think Jules would probably create a good strip.

    1. Olivia Jaimes’ Nancy isn’t bad. While she has added a few new things, she has done quite a few gags that, in my opinion, suit the feel and tone of the original Nancy better than some of the others who have carried on the strip. It’s certainly easier to stomach than the sentimentality of the Gilchrist era.
