Frankenstein meets Job (no, really)

[pulling up some favorite moments with Frankie to wrap up the month]

You never knew what you'd get in a Golden Age story, and I don't necessarily mean that in a good way. The freedom of working in a medium where the rules were still being written was too much for many creators and the resulting stories were often unreadable.

But when you got someone with enough artistic talent and narrative imagination to take advantage of that freedom, someone like an Eisner or a Cole or a Briefer, the results could be exhilarating.

From Prize Comics 31, 1943.
