Class, Hein. Hein Class was created by “Paul Pitt,” the pseudonym of the German author Paul Oskar Erttmann, and appeared in Hein Class #1-158 (1936-1937, 1939-1941). Hein Class was the Nazi-approved replacement for John Kling. Class is a sailor in the German navy who finds adventure wherever his ship puts into port. He fights Yellow Peril Buddhist stranglers (on a few occasions), leopard-worshipers in the Congo, crocodile-god-worshipers, mummy smugglers, “Devil Dwarfs,” an African Jungle Hero named N’gui, a Chinese Lupin named Leng Yok, vicious American and Chinese South Sea Adventurers, and an English Femme Fatale named Rita. He appears in stories with titles like “The White Devil,” “The Golden Dagger of Singapore,” and “The Theft of the Buddha.”
