Johnny hazard volume 2 1945-194 7 : Review

Johnny Hazard [Wing commander George in lion/ Muthu comics] : One of my all time fav comic character was created by Frank Robbins.

JH was an american world war air pilot who later turned into freelance pilot travelling around the world involving in lot of adventures outing wherever he goes.The hallmark features of his story are we can never the guess the plot line plus unique style of drawing"

5 gems of Johnny hazard featured in this book

They are

S.No Story Name No of pages Main villain
1 Fancy fluff  92 Renard 
2 The Flying freight mystery  62 Lady Mist
3 Major Risk 34 Major risk
4 The stout man  30
5 Danger a la carte 62 Gloves diamond

The size of book is real disappointment .It is very small when compared with books like Rip Kirby volumes, Agent X-9 Corrigan volumes etc.

288 pages total book cost around Rs 2500 .Definitely the costliest comics book that I have purchased so far in my life

One more thing what I liked in this series is naming of characters .Take a look at at some of character name

Brandy[His girlfriend]
Wild bill hiccup
Lady mist
Side pocket Sam[Friend]
Captain gore
Blitz martin
major risk
Gloves diamond

as far of my knowledge none of these stories came in lion / Muthu comics . A advertisement of flying freight mystery came in different story name[pazhi vangum pugaipadam]

Overall it is a must for ardent fans ofJjohnny hazard  .Waiting for the day to buy volume 1 as well

Hope editor of Lion comics will change his mind one day and publish classic detective special. Really miss this wonderful unsung hero in our tamil comics .
