The Complete Casebook of Cardigan, Vol. 1: 1931-32


Out of stock


Written by Frederick Nebel
Introduction by Will Murray

Frederick Nebel’s unforgettable character Jack Cardigan was one of the main reasons behind the success of the legendary Dime Detective Magazine. His hard-boiled P.I. stories were a major influence to other writers of the era, yet only a handful have been reprinted since their original 44-story run eighty years ago. Volume 1 of this series contains the first 11 installments, complete and uncut, with an all-new introduction by Will Murray and the original illustrations by John Fleming Gould.
