"The Hindu Idol Formula"
Major Thorpe (writer and artist), Mort Leav (pencils and inks)
Published in Jumbo Comics #49, Mar 1943 - 8 pages
A Hindu priest discovers in an ancient scroll the fact that the formula for an "unquenchable explosive is concealed in the sacred figure of one of our holy idols". He wants the allies to have it so he tells a British colonel. ZX-5 is on hand but so is an ease-dropper. Murder and theft follow.
Good line: "I live only to cut your heart out!"
