Okay, so the Silver Streak's origin is kinda convoluted and odd and it involves car racing and taxis and a Swami and resurrecting the dead and listen, here's all you need to know: as usual, Lev Gleason gathered a wildly diverse array of art styles and talents in one slam-bang book, then let them loose on stories obviously concocted on strong coffee, lots of smokes, and hurried huddles at the automat, lending the Silver Streak's adventures the delirious white-knuckle thrill of a fever dream, or a gloriously cheap B-movie serial. Coveted by collectors, this series didn't exactly sell like crazy, and had low print runs from the get-go, so if you're hankering for rarity, uniqueness, and strong bragging rights, you can't really beat this gonzoid hero series, a cult favorite since nearly the day it hit the stands.
