Web and Jaguar
 

Blue Ribbon Comics V. 2 No. 14
December 1984
Cover: Web and Jaguar vs. Freelancer and crook //Rich Buckler (signed)
Story: “The Killing Hour” (23 pages)
Editor:
Writer: Stan Timmons
Penciller: Lou Manna
Inkers: Rex Lindsley, Chic Stone
Feature Characters: Web, Jaguar (both between MIGHTY CRUSADERS (2nd series) #10 / 11)
Supporting Character: Rose Raymond (last appearance in MIGHTY CRUSADERS (2nd series) #7; last appearance)
Villains: The Freelancer and his gang, a car thief (first and only appearance for all), Washington Hayes (first appearance; dies in this story)
Comments: Rose Wayne Raymond is portrayed as being married to the Web in this story, and is revealed to be the Jaguar’s sister, so it is probable that the appearance of an older John Raymond, said to be the “father” of the current Web, is a chronicler’s error.
The mystery killer whose identity is promised to be revealed in THE FLY #10 remains a mystery, as that issue was never published.
The next issue, scheduled to feature the Cat-Girl, was never published.
Synopsis: The Web and the Jaguar team up to thwart the murderous plot of the Freelancer.
