Four Comrades

Team Roster

Pudge / Buzz / Tip / Tommy

First Appearance

Startling Comics #16 (1941)

Original Publisher


Created by



The Four Comrades were Buzz Brandon, a juvenile boxing prodigy, Tommy Tompkins, an independently wealthy boy inventor, and Pudge O'Conner and Tip Addams, a pair of street urchins. They solved crimes in their spare time, and when things got really tough, they put on their crime-fighting outfits. Although they didn't use code names, they somehow managed to keep their identities secret. Aside from their natural talents, they had no powers. Their recurring adversary was Black Satan, a demonic-looking crime lord.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Startling Comics #16-36


  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
