Headline Comics

    (Headline, 1943-1956)
©1951 Headline Publications, Inc.

Headline Comics was a late, and not especially notable, entry into the World War II comic book boom, featuring patriotic heroes such as Yank and Doodle, the Junior Rangers, and the Blue Streak. Following the atomic bombing of Japan in 1945, a super-hero named Atomic Man made a brief appearance in the pages of Headline, but soon faded away along with most of the other super-heroes of the late 1940s.

Headline changed direction with issue #23 in December, 1947, when the creative team of Simon and Kirby introduced a hard-edged true crime format to the title. From then until its demise in 1956, Headline featured the typically brutal, morally ambiguous, and luridly sensational crime stories that eventually led to the formation of the Comics Code.
