History: (Daring Mystery Comics #3-5) In 1945 American Breeze Barton was working for the Allies in World War II when he uncovered a secret Japanese army hidden in South Africa. Breeze attempted to race to London to warn his superiors, but was shot down over the Sahara. In the heart of the desert he discovered the entrance to the "Miracle City", which had been hidden from the rest of humanity in a sub-dimension for 12,000 years, with no one able to enter or leave. Breeze became involved with Anne, the daughter of Chief Scientist Zanoba, and the two of them located a way out, only to find themselves flung forward some fifty years, to a world in ruins, where the last remnant of civilisation were attempting to hold out against the attacking barbarians. Breeze and Anne helped fight off the hordes, and vowed they would help mankind rebuild.
