The Ghost Detective

Featuring George Chance, a stage magician turned hero, The Ghost, Super-Detective (as it was originally called) was a low-budget effort from the start, featuring only the lead novel and a couple of short stories. After three issues it had a single issue as simple The Ghost Detective, followed by another three as The Green Ghost Detective, before succumbing to the World War II paper shortage.
