Super-Detective (Stories)

Country: US
Total Issues: 15+65=80

Super-Detective Stories was launched in the mid-1930s but, despite rather lurid covers, it ran fairly standard crime/detective fare and lasted for only 15 issues. It was successfully revived in 1940 as a character pulp called Super-Detective, with each issue featuring a novel about Jim Anthony, scientist, businessman and adventurer. Under this title it ran for a further 65 issues, although the Jim Anthony stories were dropped in late 1943.
