The Origin of Sadman

Several weeks ago, I introduced you to my favorite superhero, Sadman. As luck would have it, while browsing a stack of old comics at a flea market this week I came upon a tattered copy of Sadman #146. That rare issue from July 1961 was the first to tell the complete origin of Sadman. The seller didn’t know what he had, so I bought it for a song.

I scanned the whole issue and edited it into easy-to-browse images. Click the cover to start reading. Don’t miss it. It’s a classic.
