    Default Star-Spangled Kid (Sylvester Pemberton) & Stripesy (Pat Dugan) Appreciation 2021

    First appearance: a preview in Action Comics #40 (September 1941)



    After that, they became the lead feature starting in Star Spangled Comics #1 (October 1941):


    In issue #81, Sylvester's parents adopt a girl named Merry so Sylvester will have a sibling, but she soon winds up taking over the feature from the Star-Spangled Kid & Stripesy!

    I know Courtney is the successor to the franchise now but I wish they would explore the kid hero with a grown up side kick concept more.

    I only really saw SSK and Stripsey in some SSV reprints, but I was always fascinated by their use of code-named maneuvers. Does anybody know if there was any consistency to those, or were writers just randomly slapping letters and numbers together?

    I would love to see updated costumes for SSK & Stripesy.

    Well, since they are definitely in the past, I think the last thing we need is to update their costumes.

    Besides, Sylvester updated his name and costume in 1986 when he became Skyman


    Pat changed from Stripesy to S.T.R.I.P.E. in 1999.
