THE SPAWN OF THE SHADOW! This list highlights a host of pulp manhunters created to rival the Master of Mystery, to duplicate his popularity, and to follow his trail of .45-calibre justice to newsstand success. They copied his outfit, his style, his methods, and even his mannerisms. Some featured wild costumes, some were masked, some seemed to have super powers. Many were simply hardboiled detectives with a gimmick, others were bizarre crimebusters right out of a Marx Brothers nightmare.

Even their names conjured visions of mystery, action, and violence: The Purple Scar, Black Hawk, Johnny Eight-Ball, Silent Smith, Seekay, The Green Lama, Death Angel, Captain Satan, Pawang Ali, Feargod Peace, The Black Bat, Calamity Quade, Click Rush, the Keyhole, Doc Trouble, Hammerlock Wilson, Red Speed, the Avenger, Captain Zero, the Masked Detective, Ivy Frost, the Lame Fox and many more! They range from the obscure to the obtuse, they're hard to find--and they're on this list. Additionally, there are several major runs featuring top crime-character authors.

This list offers a selection of CLUES, DETECTIVE TALES, G-MEN DETECTIVE and other titles that specialized in pulp manhunters, including numerous rare, difficult-to-locate short-run publications--let us know what you'd like to see included next time.
