This latest title on the PS Artbooks roster, Operation Peril is a total winner, with issues 1 through 4 boasting stories by Richard Hughes (of course) and artwork by, among others, the one and only Ogden Whitney--every cover and one story each issue. Tales of adventure and science fiction, not unlike DC's Danger Trail and EC's last issues of Two-Fisted Tales, with some sci-fi too. Three continuing features in each issue: The Time Travelers, Johnny Danger and Typhoon Tyler.

The cute couple in the Time Travelers begin by countering an alien invasion from Saturn, then go back to 1550; Typhoon Tyler tries to stop the Captain Cobra from stealing native gold in the tropics and upsetting a lovely native girl; and Johnny Danger also seems to find lovely ladies in peril in every story. Plus a whole host of other stuff likely to make your eyes water.

Artist Leonard Starr draws one if not several of the Johnny Danger stories. It's good solid art and stories in an unusual genre or two, as ACG (American Comics Group) sought to expand out of horror and the supernatural found in their other titles like Adventures Into the Unknown and Forbidden Worlds. With Richard Hughes at the helm, the stories are always a step above the competition.
