By the 10's: Hit Comics!

Here's one of those Quality Comics titles whose characters are usually referred to in a joking manner these days, but there's an appeal to these covers, don't you think?

Issue 10! Quality's heroes tended to either be completely covered (as in the Ray or Human Bomb) or showed a lot of skin (as in Black Condor, Doll Man, or Phantom Lady), didn't they? Sure, there are exceptions, but it does feel like they tend toward the extremes, doesn't it?

Issue 20 - And another character who's not dressed for cold weather!

Issue 30 - And here's Kid Eternity, the exception of this title! He was very successful for Quality!

  2. Well, he was on at least one cover, just not one that was divisible by 10!
