   Welcome to the 38th big issue of Pure Excitement Comics, the Web's longest running Golden Age reprint fanzine! First up this month is part two of the fantastic Boy King epic which began last issue. Once again, the other two stories, starring the Cadet and the Four Comrades, are both reader requests (well, someone requested the Cadet specifically and someone else requested "more Nedor heroes"). Here's an overview of this month's features:
