The Golden Age of Comic Books Podcast is back with episode #62 featuring The Green Lama!
This character got his start in pulp magazines in the early 1940’s and made his first comic book appearance in the pages of Prize Comics #7 (September 1940). He appeared in this title for 24 issues and eventually got his own book, and a new look, in Green Lama Comics #1 (March 1944). This title ran for eight issues, until 1946.
The Green Lama was drawn by the great Mac Raboy whose most notable work was on Captain Marvel Junior for Fawcett.
Here are a few cover images from Green Lama’s Golden Age comic book run.
I hope you enjoy this episode of the Golden Age of Comic Books Podcast!
