Synopsis for Espionage Starring Black X: "Pursued By Baron Basil"

Circa 1938-April: The Black X has captured Baron Basil, but Basil escapes, leaving behind some incriminating documents, that will expose a foreign spy. Black X has to make it from New York to Washington with the evidence, before Basil's numerous tireless enemy agents catch up with him, in a fast-paced cross-country passenger-train chase, aboard the Washington Special. Towards the end, Black X eludes two badguys by the "Richard Stanton method," that is, he dresses up like a very dapper old lady, chats them up, and leaves them, with an insulting note pinned to one's coat.

Notes

  • First issue under new title of "Feature Comics".
  • "Pursued by Baron Basil"
    • Baron Basil starts the story tied to a chair, but he's loose from that before the first page is over, and that's the last we see of him, for now.
    • Baron Basil looks exactly like Basil Taneo (Smash #5), he's thin but jowly and has an almost-handlebar mustache.
