Hangman Ad


Still having very little time and lots of confusing computer issues but hey, here's a cool ad for MLJ's HANGMAN series from the early forties! This controversial, violent series appeared in PEP and later in HANGMAN COMICS. In the sixties, when Archie Comics (the former MLJ) revived their forties heroes, they chose to use this darker character as a villain! Archie's much later Red Circle re-revival attempted to give some closure to the Hangman and,at the same time, pass on the mantle to his son.
