The wiki last edited by MoonBoi on 09/17/13 11:13AM View full history

In the final pages of this issue and advertisement hailed the launch of Detective Comics, "Just what you ordered," blurted the sales copy. A high stepping detective magazine in pictures! Writers such as Tom Hickey, Sven Elven, and Bill Patrick - largely overlooked today - received top billing, while the up and coming Siegel and Shuster appeared in the listings almost as an after thought. Interestingly, the ad's reproduction of Detective Comics# 1's cover bore a "December 1936" date, but delays would shift the issue to March 1937 - robbing Wheeler Nicholson of the cross promotion he obviously hoped for through this advertisement.
