Marvel Wiki Link: Daring Mystery Comics #2
- Voyage To Sunev: Zephyr Jones tries to reach Mars but ends up on a nearby planet called Sunev. A planet inhabited by winged humanoids. By the end of the story, Zephyr and his pal Corky, gives the bird people the gift of guns. Gee, I wonder how that worked out for them.
Impressing The Girl Moment: Zephyr & Corky show the bird lady their guns.
- Origin Of The Phantom Bullet: The Phantom Bullet’s 1st story starts out decent enough. We get an origin story, some minor insight into the lead character and a mystery that could involve more bird people. Then BANG! At that moment, you realize you’re reading a Golden Age comic. Why you may ask? Isn’t the possibility of bird people crazy enough? Not when the mystery criminals are African Salvages that also happen to be HALF APE with seven toes. WTF? Really? No Really.
Golden Age Wackiness Moment: Not bird people, but African Salvages with a secret.
- King Of The Jungle: Is Trojack, Ka-Zar long lost brother? Or is Trojack, Ka-Zar on a parallel earth? Either way, this tale is simple and not bad for a Ka-Zar rip-off.
WTF? Moment: Violence in the Golden Age
- Six-Gun Dynamite: A text story with decent twist. Remember to handle that dynamite with care folks.
Sadness Moment: Poor Horse
- Introducing K-4: The choice of storytelling by the writer ruins any chance for this tale to be interesting. I found myself begging it be over.
Shoot Me In the Head Moment: A boring story about pilots in the war.
- Who In Reality Is Mr. "E"?: After the last two tales, Mr. E is refreshing. Mr. E faces what could be considered Timely/Marvel's first true super-villain, named The Vampire. Also, there appeared to be a history between the two. At one point, Mr. E called him his arch enemy. Good Read.
Hardcore Moment: The Vampire actually kills. Bring on the Super-Villains.
- Enter The Laughing Mask: The Laughing Mask is basically like ever street hero introduced so far, but he seems different. As in he seems to have some sort of "real" powers or maybe I just hoping for some.
What Goes Bump In The Night Moment: The Laughing Mask freaks out some gangsters
