Robotman, a Golden Age classic by Jimmy Thompson

Jimmy Thompson's deft draftsmanship is delightfully on display in this great Golden Age classic!
Robotman vs. Rubberman!
Comicbook legend, Jim Steranko said Jimmy Thompson was “a combination of Jack Cole and Will Eisner, in fact, some of Thompson’s work topped theirs.” in his 1970 book, The Steranko History of Comics Volume 1.That's big praise considering all the raves lavished on Eisner and Cole. And this coming from a comic legend himself.
