Issue Notes

This volume does not include The Torch Car Case (1935.03.11 - 1935.04.20), part of Alex Raymond's work on the strip. In a letter from Bill Blackbeard to Gus G. Stangas, Blackbeard explains that the Editor cut the sequence to reduce the book's page count, and also his introductory article was edited down as well.

Indexer Notes

First strips are unsigned. Austin Briggs guess comes from introduction. Hammett appears to have been replaced by Raymond as writer sometime in 1935.
