Captain Midnight, by Leonard Frank

Leonard Frank was one of the many artists who worked on 'Captain Midnight', written by Otto O. Binder. Other artists were Clem Weis-Becker, Lincoln Cross, and Al Bare. The 'Captain Midnight'-character was originally created by radio writers Willfred Moore and Robert Murit in a radio-show in 1940. The Captain appeared first in comic form in 1941, published by Dell. In June 1942 this was taken over by Fawcett Comics, which made 'Captain Midnight' a major comic book feature. It ran until September 1948, when the need to fight German and Japanese enemies was no longer of any necessity.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
