On this day, 11 November 1972: Lion and Thunder
Beware The Shadow of the Snake!
Evil scientist Professor Krait was the alter-ego of this scaly super-villain, which ran in Lion for nearly a year. John Catchpole was the regular artist.
Krait returned in Masters of Menace, tag-teaming with sinister Ezra Creech. Creech was the villain of the White-eyes trilogy, which had run in Lion prior to The Shadow of the Snake.
