Originally a costumed murderer in a play by the same name, it appears as if jealous actor Perry Knight has turned the role into reality by shooting his rival and kidnapping actress Linda Lytell whom he loves. The Woman in Red catches the real Black Death, Mr. Weber. The Black Death dresses in a black form fitting costume head to foot with the emblem of a skull on his chest.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Thrilling Comics #10


  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
