Happy Fourth of July

Here's a quick Fourth of July treat:

The cover to Captain Marvel Jr. #9

I gotta say, I picked up the Shazam Family Archives Vol. 1 from the library and was astounded with how great the art was. I'd never seen Mac Raboy's art before and it's easily the most "modern" work I'd ever seen in a Golden Age book. He would be an A-list artist today. On top of that there's a scene where Cap Jr. beats up a squadron of Japanese Zeroes and then, beats on the pilots as they parachute to "safety". Now that's hard.
