Captain Marvel - Whiz Comics

Staying true to its name, Golden Age Comic Book Stories posted two complete issues of Whiz Comics, featuring Captain Marvel, from 1941.  When reviewing the scans to find an appropriate page to post, I could not resist this title page for this South American adventure, "Capt. Marvel and the Temple of Itzalotahui" (pronounced "it's-a-lot-a-hooey").  Also interesting in this post are the ads for the Captain Marvel serial by Republic Studios.
