The Clock Strikes Again Chapter 1 Cover
Phantom64 on Sept. 15, 2012
The beginning of a new
story for a superhero who has been long forgotten. The Clock was the
first official masked detective in comic books, but sadly, like many of
the prolific Golden Age heroes he did not make the transition into
iconic status like Superman or Wonder Woman and fell into obscurity...
And also the public domain.
In the past 10 years a number of
public domain superheroes have been making a come back (Like Dynamite's
Project Superpowers series and the webcomic series Curse of the Black
Terror), and decided I wanted to do that too. I decided The Clock
deserves to be remembered in some way. He may not have been the most
memorable masked detective, but he was the first, and I think that's
something that matters.
