Included in PROJECT B's Rare Originals Collection and a true comics rarity, is Camera Comics. Only nine issues were ever published by U. S. Camera Publishing Corporation between 1944 and 1946. The series featured action heroes whose exploits involved not guns or superhuman strength, but cameras. Meet Linda Lens, woman photographer – the first and only female action-adventure photographer. And Jim Lane, Insurance Investigator, Grey Comet, Aerial Photographer and a teenager named Kid Click. The comic even included fact-based stories about famous figures in photographic history such as Eadweard Muybridge and George Eastman, and instructive articles such as how to build a darkroom and tips for better picture taking. WOW!
