No Thrill for Captain Thunder
Saturday, September 06, 2008
Flash Comics #1With Flash Comics off the table, Fawcett tried again with Thrill Comics but the registration of the title failed due to Better Comics getting there first with Thrilling Comics starring Dr. Strange!

Not only did Fawcett need to come up with a new name for their flagship character but they couldn't come up with a name for the comic book he was to star in.

Shazam! Fun Fact Text
After losing Flash Comics to The Flash, Captain Thunder almost starred in... Thrill Comics!

Unfortunately, Fawcett was beaten to the punch, again! This time by Better Comics who launched Thrilling Comics #1 — starring Dr. Strange!

The cover of Feb 1940 Thrilling Comics #1 featured the bare-chested Dr. Strange battling a wild tiger!
