Woops – one more post before we leave 1942 behind for good! I thought it would be a good time to skip back a month and cover at least one superhero debut that I missed: Liberty Belle makes her debut hiding out in Boy Commandos #1. Liberty Belle was a World War II heroine who, after her father was killed in a hotel bombing in Poland, escaped war-torn Poland and arrived in America to help spur the country on to enter the war effort. She gained her extra strength and stamina from the ringing of the actual Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.
Liberty Belle was created by Don Cameron, who I learned grew up in Detroit, Michigan and then worked for the Windsor Star in Windsor, Ontario Canada (where I grew up).
