Reading Room: SCARLET PHANTOM "Curse of Gold"

Here's the never-reprinted origin of a hero you've never heard of... a story with a title that has no relation to the actual plot!
And that's it!
The Scarlet Phantom never appeared after this tale in All-New Short Story Comics #2 in 1943!
Heck, he never even got a logo!
I guess, having avenged his father's death, Jack Winstead went back to full-time reporting.
The art, BTW, is one of the first examples of work by a very young Joe Kubert, apparently channeling Lou Fine.
