Notes:
D.S. Publishing Company enters the publishing market around 1941, with several 'song sheets' (slim magazines, which reprinted the lyrics of popular songs under license from A.S.C.A.P.), which were popular at the time; in 1946, D.S. published Select Detective, a one-shot true crime magazine (the cover reads Selected Detective); late 1947, D.S. begins publishing comic books, which includes Select Detective, now as a comic; with early issues of Underworld and Outlaws being notably violent; by 1949-50, D.S. is publishing its final comic titles, with the juvenile interest Elsie the Cow (licensed by Borden Milk) and Let's Pretend (a CBS radio show); Richard Davis is listed throughout as editor, publisher or president, with V.C. Albus listed as vice president 1949-50; the editorial address throughout is 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NYC, which was subsequently used by another comic book publisher, P.L. Publishing (1951); no other connection is known at this time.
