Ryan, Rocky. Rocky Ryan is “a free-lance adventurer, a man that fights with a grim smile, a man that lives and breathes action and daily strife." He is active around the world, from India’s North-West Frontier to Brazil to northern Africa, and his adventures are equally varied: fighting Mongol bandits led by the Moon Mistress (and her solar-powered weapons), an Antarctic Lost Race, Yellow Perils (Chin Lee) who lead the Cult of the Juggernaut, Japanese Mad Scientists, and the Afrika Korps in Egypt. Ryan appears in stories with titles like "The Search for the Whistling Flower," "Peril in Angkor-Thom," and "To Save a Lady Spy."
