Notes

  • Buck Jones: Credit line says "Acted in and written by Buck Jones"
    • Caption: "In those early days, a recorded deed was final." Also no cars or telephone wires or railroad tracks seen.
    • Some of the language used by Marshall Jones, and others, is downright rude. Comic book stories from 1941 may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While not representing the DC Comics view of today's society, these stories are being indexed and summarized as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.
  • Bulletman: Several cities in the western United States are attacked by giant bombers, destroying some important industrial centers. Afterward this is never mentioned again.
  • Captain Venture is a chapter in an ongoing serial; this issue's other stories all stand alone.
  • Companions Three: Cabarro in 1941 is the only country at peace in a war-torn region, a mountain nation ruled by a hereditary monarchy. Cabarro soldiers wear antique military uniforms
  • El Carim pins an assassin to a wooden column with a sword poked through both of his palms.
    • Olbaid spelled backward is "Diablo".
  • Minute Man packs a concealed handgun.
    • This story takes place on July 4th
  • Also appearing in this issue of Master Comics were:
    • Full-page ad for the Giant Whiz Contest
    • Larry Dean: "The Flying Fool" (text story) by LaRac Semrof
    • Amazing Oddities: "Jumbo, Basilisk, Black Widow, Walking Fish"
    • Full-page ad for Adventures of Captain Marvel serial from Republic Studios
