Disinterred: The Origins of The Bulletproof Coffin #2 - CRIME DOES NOT PAY!


Well it paid pretty well for Lev Gleason! Five million readers every month bought this mind-warping literature. Lev sure knew what the kids wanted.

AND IT'S ALL TRUE FOLKS!

A GOOD OLD FASHIONED SPANKING - THAT'LL SORT OUT THE LITTLE TYKE!

DON'T WORRY, THIS COMIC HAS A WHOLESOME MESSAGE FOR THE READERS...



Disinterred: The Origins of The Bulletproof Coffin #1 - His name is KANE!!!

Fans of The Bulletproof Coffin often ask us where our ideas come from. Some creators like to be secretive about their inspiration but Shaky and I believe in full disclosure. It's all down to mis-spent youth. Too much TV, too many unsuitable novels, and far too many comics...

Here are a couple of pages from DC's The House of Mystery #180 (1969) The story is called "His name is...Kane" Pencils by Gil Kane, inks by Wally Wood, story by Mike Friedrich.








From the archive - Shaky speaks!

The legendary Shaky Kane profiled and interviewed in the February 1992 issue of DEADLINE.
