Gay Hitler

The Marksman was a minor back-pages feature in Quality's Smash Comics, home to a number of fondly remembered characters such as Wildfire, The Ray and the great Jack Cole's Midnight. Given that company, it's easy to see how the Marksman has been overlooked. Other than an odd but useful alter ego as a Nazi officer, there's just not much reason to remember the series, but it did give us this example of wartime propoganda based on homophobia instead of racism.
