He discovers that the statue is loaded with explosives, timed to go off during a citizen's committee speech to be given by the judge.

Indexer Notes

Next appearance in Jo-Jo Comics #7.

Credits added by Craig Delich.

Alec Hope is a pen name for Bronze Man creator/artist, Alvin C. Hollingsworth, and appeared on the strips that Hollingsworth drew (courtesy of the Who's Who).

Despite the text which specifically says Bronze Man wears a "bronze mask" to conceal his "disfigured" face, this story (and the other Bronze Man stories) has been redrawn so the hero does not wear a mask and his face is normal.
