Double-Dare Adventures

    (Harvey, 1966-1967)
©1966 Harvey Features Syndicate

This short-lived and rather unremarkable 64-page quarterly presented adventure stories of both super-hero and exploration genres. The super-hero features included the unintentionally goofy B-Man (of Federal Bee Investigators—the “FBI”), the Glowing Gladiator, and Magicmaster. So far as is known, this series is the only appearance of most of these heroes.

The adventure stories, in prose and comics form, were generic and featured no continuing characters. No creator credits, but some artists, like Carmine Infantino, can be recognized.
