Characters
Johnny Green; The Green Mask
Synopsis
A train filled with clothing donated for refugees in Europe is wrecked and the donations stolen. Schoolboy Johnny, a passenger on the train, gets angry and becomes the Green Mask. The Green Mask tracks the stolen clothes to a phony charity organisation in New York and foils their plan.

Indexer Notes

"Jack Fisk" (previous issues spelled Fiske) is probably a house byline not a real person.

The donated clothes are destined for the real-life UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration).

Indexer Notes

One Round Hogan's next appearance is in ZOOT COMICS #8.

"Jo Logan" is the house byline for this feature, probably not a real person. Al Zere is credited with the art on another One Round Hogan story via a JVJ index card attached to the online scanned version of that issue. The art is consistent in virtually all stories featuring this character.

This story ends abruptly but since none of the stories in this issue has a "The End" in the final panel, presumably it is complete.
