Get Ready For Independence Day With The Adventures Of Operator #5


by John Newton Howitt

With Independence Day approaching, it’s time to honor Jimmy Christopher.  Jimmy was an agent for United States Intelligence, cod-named Operator #5.  From 1934 to 1939, Jimmy kept America safe from its enemies as the star of the 10-cent pulp magazine, Secret Service Operator #5.  Today, Secret Service Operator #5 is best-remembered for two things: a 13 issue arc in which Jimmy became a freedom fighter after America was conquered by the Purple Empire (a thinly-veiled stand-in for Nazi Germany) and a series of exciting, patriotic covers.

Unless otherwise noted, the covers below are all credited to John Newton Howitt:
