Image for Detective Comics And Books

If you are contemplating committing a crime, then our detective category is certainly not the place to do it, as here reside the cream of sleuths.

Arguably the biggest fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes, makes a brief appearance with Charlton's two issue run, maybe due to licensing issues.

Charlie Chan appears both in newspaper strip and comic book format. The comic strip, drawn by Alfred Andriola, was abruptly dropped after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. After the war he made a comeback. Two examples we have are, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby's Prize Comics' Charlie Chan and a later Charlton Comics title.

We have other big names. Simon Templar, known to us all as The Saint. The Robin Hood of modern crime is a bad guy turned good. Ellery Queen, a mystery writer who helps his police inspector father solve murders. The prolific Sexton Blake, plus a lot more!

We have 79 titles and 1,707 issues in our 'Detective Category' for you to enjoy.
