Samson, Win-or-Smash. Win-or-Smash Samson was created by Jack Stirling and appeared in a number of stories in Triumph in 1930 and 1931.

Vic “Win-or-Smash” Samson is a racer who drives the Special, a modified race car, faster than anyone else—Vic will either win his race, or smash the car in trying. One might think that the world of racing is relatively sedate, but Samson continually runs across evil swarthy criminals and other unscrupulous types. Vic is assisted by his friend Fatty.
