Happy Halloween, Dr. Thirteen!

Cover jam by Leonard Starr & Jim Aparo
Happy Halloween!  To celebrate, this episode of I'm the Gun takes a look at DC's Doctor of Debunk, the Physician of Phenomenology,  Dr. Thirteen!

We'll start with a brief (very brief) publishing history, followed by a look at the good Doctor's very 1st appearance in Star Spangled Comics #122, from November 1951.  Next up is a recap of a 3-part story from Ghosts #s 97-99 (Feb.-Apr. 1981 ) featuring Dr. 13 in confrontation with DC's foremost spirit avenger, The Spectre!

Get your pumpkin buckets ready and download this episode HERE.  Check out previous episodes of I'm the Gun on iTunes, and scroll down for some eerie images from these issues below!

Like a skeptical Bruce Wayne, Dr. Thirteen sets up shop.
