Jones, Yankee Doodle. Three maimed war veterans willingly give up their lives and their organs so that an “eminent surgeon” can create an “invincibility injection.” Unfortunately, after he has injected Yankee Doodle Jones with it, German agents shoot him. Jones avenges his death and then goes on to fight other villains, guided by the spirit of Uncle Sam himself. Jones fights a masked German and his ally, “the last witch from the Dark Ages, ha ha!” Jones’ sidekick and younger brother is Dandy. With Dandy Jones fights a deformed Moreau-like Mad Scientist and his dogs, which when they bite other people drive them mad with hydrophobia. Jones fights a German using the head of the Medusa to kill patriotic Americans. And so on. Jones appears in stories with titles like “The Head of Medusa,” “The Case of the Strangling Hair, and “Another Volunteer Pilot Burns in Plane.”
