Leading Comics No.4

Description
Leading Comics No. 4 was published by DC Comics in the fall of 1942 and sold for ten cents. The cover art by Mort Meskin features the Seven Soldiers of Victory— the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripsey, The Crimson Avenger, Green Arrow and Speedy, The Vigilante and the Shining Knight—attacking a gigantic green head (The Sixth Sense) in a bell jar. In this issue each member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory defeated a prospective jewel thief before coming together to vanquish the Sixth Sense.
Like many “team titles” of the period, issues of Leading Comics featured a hero and his sidekick defeating a minor villain in an individual chapter before teaming up and defeating the “big bad” together in the end.
