Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Theft of the Book of Thoth"

Doctor Fate learns that the Book of Thoth, which contains all the lost magic that was destroyed when Atlantis sank, has been stolen. He tracks the thief to the Chalk Cliffs of Devon. He then finds that the thief, a powerful mage, never named here, is using the awesome and world-bending magic of the book to steal money. Doctor Fate tries to stop this wizard, only to have him release a great destructive spell, which causes Inza Cramer's penthouse apartment to tumble into the street below. Doctor Fate averts casualties by kapoofing the whole apartment into dust; Inza never bats an eye at any of this.

Back at the main fight, Doctor Fate manages to tear the book from the sorcerer's grasp, to counter the spell. Then he punches him out, and the unnamed mage just falls to his death. When the evil magician dies, the animals and trees in the area attack Doctor Fate, seeking revenge. Doctor Fate then burns the book, which breaks the spell and returns the trees and animals to normal, but thousands of fish die where the book's ashes are scattered across the sea.

Notes

  • Published by Detective Comics, Inc..
  • Captain Desmo:
    • Gabby is from Brooklyn.
    • Droon had an "Attractor Ray" that could completely override the controls of an airplane and draw it towards his island base. This device was on a tower, at Droon's airfield, which survived the factory's destruction, thus it was neither captured nor destroyed.
  • Doctor Fate: The Theft of the Book of Thoth is reprinted in The Golden Age Doctor Fate Archives Vol. 1.
    • Doctor Fate mentions that Inza's value to him is her connection to the mainstream world. He wants her to search for clues because Doctor Fate “must spend [his] life in the tower!”
    • The Lost Book of Thoth contains all the lost magic that was destroyed when Atlantis sank; it was thought to lie in the middle of the River Koptos and to be guarded by an immortal snake.
  • Spectre: The Arsonist is reprinted in Golden Age Spectre Archives 1.
    • James the butler and Pete the gangster are both killed by the Spectre in this story, so Spectre's body count = 8.[1][2]
