Here from 1950 is a rather elaborate ad for DC's DANGER TRAIL. This was, of course, during the period when all comics publishers were grasping at straws to try to find the next big trend since superheroes were on the outs after WWII. The stories featured "King" Faraday and were for the most part written by Robert Kanigher and drawn in the quickly maturing style of the company's future publisher Carmine Infantino. International intrigue stories did not turn out to be the next big thing, however. EC's William Gaines and Al Feldstein were about to discover the "New Trend" across town.
