  I was kind of hoping this would be the first appearance of Vandal Savage, but no dice. This type of caper would've been something he might've been interested in during this era, too. I was also disappointed in the heavy flashbacks and exposition, which dragged this story down a bit. 2 stars

  Nuts! Thought we were getting the debut of Vandal Savage too. Still a decent story.

  That was a pretty good story, especially for the time period. Not just another canned protection racket story or whatever.
