Clues (All Star) (Detective Stories)

Clues was always a popular choice among readers, despite never quite reaching the top rank of detective pulps. Starting in 1926 it ran for a very creditable 17 years (and 218 issues) before falling foul of the wartime paper shortages like so many other pulps.

In 1932 it absorbed All Star Detective Stories and was briefly known as Clues All Star Detective Stories before shortening the name to Clues Detective Stories.

There was no v1 #1 issue.

A Canadian reprint edition is known to exist, and seems to be a direct reprint of the US edition.
