TERRY KANE

TERRY KANE

“Terry Kane –The Man Of A Thousand Adventures” with his secretary/companion Tina Drake was a globe-trotting adventurer searching for artifacts for his collection. He was involved in the occasional wartime story but the emphasis was the search for the mysterious in exotic locations. This character’s adventures show that Anglo-American was preparing for the post war market.

Jack Calder thought of “Terry Kane” spinning him off from another Anglo-American character. Ed Furness could not remember which one, but it was most likely “Martin Blake The Animal King”. “Martin Blake” as well emphasized the mysterious in exotic locations and downplayed wartime stories. Priscilla Hutchings and June Banfield illustrated this character.

By issue 3-11, December 1944, “Crusaders”, “Purple Rider” and “Terry Kane” had completely replaced the “Bulletman” stories in Three Aces Comics, returning this periodical to a completely in house production..
