A true comics rarity, only nine issues of Camera Comics were ever published by U. S. Camera Publishing Corporation, appearing between 1944 and 1946. The series featured action heroes whose exploits involved not guns or superhuman strength, but cameras. There’s Linda Lens, woman photographer – the first and only female action-adventure photographer. We meet Jim Lane, Insurance Investigator…Grey Comet, Aerial Photographer…plus 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.
