Navy Bob Steele by Erwin Greenwood
Navy Bob Steele (1941)

Erwin Greenwood was the original artist of the 'Navy Bob Steele' newspaper comic. Greenwood launched the comic with former U.S. Navy lieutenant Wilson Starbuck as a Sunday half-page for the McClure Syndicate in November 1939. The strip supported President Roosevelt's policy of war prepardness, and strangely enough the hero was aboard a destroyer during a rescue at the same day Pearl Harbor was bombed. Greenwood remained on the comic until 1944, when he was replaced by William King.
