America has a new hero
The initial comic-book character called Fighting Yank first appeare in Nedor Comics' Startling Comics #10 (Sept. 1941), during the period fans and historians call the Golden Age of comic books. He was created by writer Richard E. Hughes and artist Jon L. Blummer. Later artwork was produced by Jack Binder's studio.
Fighting Yank was created during World War II as a patriotic hero similar to The Shield and Captain America. He was one of Nedor Comics more successful characters, eventually replacing Captain Future in Startling Comics. In September 1942, Fighting Yank received his own title. Fighting Yank also appeared in America's Best Comics until that series was canceled in 1949.
