A man pretending to be a blind beggar is the leader of a bank robbery

Indexer Notes

Originally cerdited "Al Bryant?", but tilting figures with long upper body and awkward way of standing and walking, as on rubber legs, some wild eyes, and also broad shoulders and narrow head on stretched neck are all pointing to Zolnerowich. He is credited on both pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but inking may vary.

humor; detective-mystery
Characters
Swing Sisson; Mrs. Murdock (first appearance; villain); Erik (first appearance; villain); Herbert (nephew)
Synopsis
Mrs. Murdock held a banquet for her dead friends when an insurance detective is murdered in the house.

Indexer Notes

Tomsey is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and some faces in sideview have similarities with his signed Jackie Law stories in Clue Comics, and also his Kid Click in US Camera Comics, so could be by him. The inking has some resemblence to the many Manhunter and Jester stories in Police Comics, by unknown.

Synopsis
Spin ditches his plane in the ocean and is nearly caught by the Japanese.

Indexer Notes

Quackenbush is credited on pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the many short figures and narrow heads point to him. Uncertain inking when compared with his signed stories.

Indexer Notes

The same art as in the many Manhunter stories in Police Comics credited to Riss. Grinning faces that all look alike, and long legs. Same inker as in many Manhunter and Jester stories, but unknown. Riss is credited with pencils only on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who.
