Vice-Squad Detective [1935]

Total Issues: 1

Published as a direct challenge to Spicy Detective Stories, the stories in Vice-Squad Detective were even sexier and it is believed that most copies were seized by police prior to distribution, which may explain why there was no second issue.

Although dated as 1933 by many authorities, its publication was noted in the July 1935 issue of Author & Journalist.
