Strange Detective Mysteries premiered in October of 1937. After two issues, it changed its title - and its focus - to Captain Satan. It featured a crime-fighting hero much in the style of Robin Hood or The Saint, who robbed from the crooks - a grim, hard vigilante of justice. By day, he was wealthy Cary Adair. By night, Captain Satan! Assisted by a dozen aides, none of whom knew the identities of the others, this scourge of the underworld brought terror to all men of evil who saw his calling card, a devil figure projected onto the wall by a portable light. The series lasted a short five issues from March 1938 until July 1938, and then returned to Strange Detective Mysteries where it continued for 26 more issues into mid-1943. Captain Satan now returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today's listeners in digital format.
