I own one original issue of the Green Lama comic, so much of this volume didn't come as a surprise, but I was a little surprised to see how consistently these stories are, oh, shall we say, "inspired" by other comics. Green Lama himself is a thin Captain Marvel rip off, and the Boy Champions are a riff on the Boy Commandoes, or maybe the Tough Kid Squad, or the Young Allies, or...geez, there's a lot of them.

Rick Masters, the aviation strip, falls short of being a rip off of other aviation strip

I bought this book a comic book convention last year. I have been a big fan of Mac Raboy for years. I try to buy at least one of his comics everytime I'm at a show. They are getting more and more expensive, and harder to find.

The main attraction here is Mac Raboy's artwork on the otherwise forgettable character. Unfortunately, that work is only about a quarter of the entire book. The rest is devoted to even more obscure back-up features. The artwork overall is better than in most comics of the period, but the writing is ridiculous through out. Mildly interesting as a curiosity, but you'll hate yourself if you spend money on it.

Amusing, but the title character's stories were the weakest of the bunch. Disappointing in that regard, but these were reasonably solid Golden Age stories.
