   By Superman
The cover art is stiff, isn't great, and isn't Lou Fine, but Lou Fine's art on the Ray comic book story inside is classic! I like pretty much all the Quality costumed hero / anthology comics, and tried to collect Smash Comics, Police Comics, and Crack Comics back in the 1970s. Thanks for making available as scans all these comics I couldn't afford to buy then and can afford to buy even less now. I prefer the digital scans to decaying pulp paper anyway.

Comic StoryAl Regna (5 pages)
FeaturingThe Scarlet Seal
CreditsScript: Harry Francis Campbell [as Duane Byrd Monroe] (signed) | Pencils: Harry Francis Campbell [as Duane Byrd Monroe] (signed) | Inks: Harry Francis Campbell [as Duane Byrd Monroe] (signed)
ContentGenre: Detective-mystery | Characters: The Scarlet Seal [Barry Moore]; Captain Pat Moore; Al Regna (villain)
NotesThis feature was created by Manning de Villeneuve Lee, an accomplished fine artist and book illustrator who specialized in historical subjects. His by-line only appears on the first story in #16....after that, the strip was signed "Duane Byrd Monroe", a pen name for which no reference can be found. The Who's Who lists Campbell as writer and artist in 1940-41.......Lee (called Lee Manning in the Who's Who) wrote and drew the strip in 1940, and Henry Taylor drew the strip in 1941. I'll leave it to other writer/art experts that have access to all the stories (from Smash #2-24) to determine who did what stories story and artwise.

NotesWill Eisner created the Espionage feature, and Will Erwin was a pen name used by Will Eisner (Erwin was Eisner's middle name) until he left the feature at the end of 1940. It also became a house by-line as well for future writers.
