Zatara -- June 10, 2014

Zatara was a supporting character in DC's Action Comics and Detective Comics for many decades.  I remember new stories when I was reading comics in the 1960s and 1970s,  Zatara was a stage magician who had actual magic powers.  He invoked his powers by speaking backwards.  Things got more interesting when his daughter Zatanna appeared.  The artists had a lot of fun drawing her.  Here he makes a rare cover appearance on Action Comics number 12.  I like the style of the Streamline Moderne rocketship.  The image is from the wonderful site CoverBrowser (http://www.coverbrowser.com/).
