Pep 1: You Knocked My Block Off
That's one less Rockem-Sockem robot to threaten American democracy! Who needs Old Glory Insurance when the Shield's around?
Lot of heroes can handle robots; but robots with guns? Impressive! Odd... but impressive.
Our good friend the Shield debuted in the first issue of MLJ's Pep Comics (in case, you know, you had some trouble READING THAT LETTERING). Pep Comics was known -- originally -- for its unique brand of "Action Detective Adventure". Don't bother reading DC comics, kids; we can give you Action, Detective, and Adventure all in one comic!
Note the yellow background; it's the Shield's favorite color and soon we'll discover why.
