Synopsis for "Yiffendi Invades the Philippines"Edit

Uncle Sam steps in to aid the newly-independent Philippines against a small but ambitious expansionist Asiastic power. Chancellor Mias sends his brute of a general, Yiffendi, stir up the Moros to create a pretext for their forces to step in and restore order. Villages are massacred and Filipino army detachments are wiped out; thousands die.

-- Uncle Sam sets about rallying the locals to take back their land. First, with only two Filipino soldiers, and two machine guns, plus Buddy, he sets up an ambush in a mountain valley, then strolls around until he gets captured and taken to Yiffendi's encampment. He bandies words with the main badman, then effortlessly escapes and sprints away, pursued by 500 howling Moros. They run right into the field of fire, but it is just two guns against hundreds of them. Uncle Sam flings a lot of really large rocks into the canyon, and very soon the surviving Moros turn and flee. Only ten make it back to the fort. Yiffendi resolves to send a thousand this time, and Mias signals his fleet to land some regular (expansionist asiatic) army troops; meanwhile Sam and Buddy and their two allies sneak around to attack the fort as soon as the next wave is sent out. Soon Yiffendi is in the mountains with his large force, and Uncle Sam's small team is overrunning the 10-man garrison left behind at the fort, which is now all theirs. Sam closes and bars the massive gates. Two Filipino soldiers, with a lot of ammunition now at their disposal, are holding off Yiffendi's forces, while Sam and Buddy go to intercept the amphibious landing. Sam dives into the ocean and swims out to one of the speedy launches, lifts it out of the water, and throws all the invaders off it, then motors back and picks up Buddy, who grouses about how he never gets to do anything, until one badguy, braver than the rest, scrambles back aboard the boat and tries to jump him. Uncle Sam punches him right back off the boat again.

--- Unc then zooms his captured speedboat directly toward the main enemy warship, which is called a battleship in one caption then called a destroyer in the very next one, and batteries of naval guns are brought to bear on his craft. Whatever kind of warship this is, it has got an airplane catapult on its deck, so Unc and Buddy are kept busy dodging the surface-to-surface gunfire plus a dive-bombing run, but they manage this handily, plus Unc shoots down the plane. And pretty soon, Sam hefts up a naval mine, flings it at the enemy ship, and blows it up real good.

The two soldiers holding the fort give a heroic account of themselves but eventually numbers prevail and a large mass of Moros swarm inside; only to perish along with the defenders in a dynamite trap that those two unnamed heroes have set up.

Synopsis for "Dredge's Orphanage"Edit

One night on a dark street, orphanage runaway Mickey, pursued by cruel authorities, crashes into Merlin the greatest Magician on Earth and Merlin conceals him within his cloak and becomes invisible; the uniformed orphanage guards run right past them. Mickey tells of the abusive conditions at his orphanage, run by Mr. Dredge, and orphanage worker Miss Lovewell (whom Mickey likes) arrives to corroborate his account; Merlin accompanies them back to the place. Merlin confirms for himself that Mickey's story is on the level, and causes Dredge some well-deserved discomfort in the process.

--- That night as the hungry boys are tossing in their drab quarters, Merlin and Miss Lovewell are in Dredge's office, working the standard Quality Comics investigative technique of breaking into the badguy's safe and helping themselves to all the incriminating paperwork inside it (and there always is some). Dredge interrupts them, but from Merlin's magic fingertips a host of tittering demons spring, sweep dredge upstairs to his own quarters, and generally terrorize him. Merlin comes upstairs to give Dredge a good scolding, but screams from the dormitory draw him there, in time to interrupt whipping, with a real whip, being administered on Mickey by one orphanage attendant. That guy gets magically strangled unconscious with his own cat-o-nine-tails and dragged out of the room by Merlin. The next morning there is an assembly, for Mickey's public punishment, but Merlin is still there; he gestures and Dredge's torso inflates like a helium balloon, and he floats haplessly in place while Mickey punches him a few times, before Merlin deflates him. He drops onto the floor, hard, then some cops come into the room and take him away, under arrest for misappropriating orphanage funds. When Merlin leaves, Miss Lovewell is in charge of the orphanage, and a week later he gets a letter from Mickey about how much better things are now.

Featured Characters

Synopsis for "Rescuing the South American Expedition"Edit

Wonder Boy encounters a weeping newsboy whose father has gone missing on a South American expedition, and promises to go there and help him out. The next day at the docks, Wonder Boy gets some static from the passenger ship captain, and has to toss him about a bit to get him to take him aboard. One day into the trip the engines crap out and a violent storm comes up. Wonder Boy persuades the crew to hand him one end of an anchor chain, which he ties around himself, and dives off the bow, and swims, to South America, towing the ship behind him. One day later they have arrived at some tropical part of South America, and they go ashore. That night their camp is attacked by spear-wielding native warriors. Wonder Boy quickly and easily defeats them. As they flee, he follows them, to a cave in the base of a mountain. In the cave he finds a human sacrifice ritual going on, and recognizes the missing expedition members. He attacks the gathering with a really large boulder then with a big cement pole, and lays waste to the hostiles in short order, and locates the chief, and runs him through with his own spear. The expedition men are all freed, and a short time later they are back in the city in America where the story started, and the newsboy is reunited with his family.
