The All-Winners Squad - Part 7 "War Between The Worlds!"
Here at last is the concluding chapter of the sprawling Golden Age Timely tale "The Riddle of the Demented Dwarf" from All-Winners #21. Captain America, Bucky, Sub-Mariner, Human Torch, Toro, Whizzer, and Miss America have saved the continents of Europe, South America, Asia, Africa, and North America from the specific threats from Future Man and Madame Death. Now they join forces as the assembled "All-Winners Squad" to put an end to the menace once and for all.
The finale was written as always by Otto Binder and drawn this time by Vince Alascia and Al Avison. Prepare for the "War Between the Worlds".
I hope that was fun. As I've said before, this is arguably my favorite Golden Age story and that has a lot to do with it being among my very first ones no doubt. But it's all here in this one, the wild and varied heroes, the globe-spanning scale of the threat, and the ending that shows that in fiction at least there is a happy ending.
