Strong, Socko. Socko Strong is a very much like Joe Palooka: a good-hearted and very strong boxer who uses his pugilistic skills to fight for good. His adventures bring him around the world and into conflict with witch doctors, racketeers, and Neanderthals. Strong is helped by his scrawny newspaper photographer friend Jerry Indutch. Socko Strong appears in stories with titles like "Hassle in Hollywoood," "The Flying Dutchman," and "Boxing Glove Versus Fiddle."
