KEEN DETECTIVE FUNNIES #9

Grade:
CGC FN-: 5.5
Formerly Detective Picture Stories, Keen Detective Funnies featured crime and detective characters (appropriately enough) such as the Clock, believed to be the first masked character created specifically for comic books; and the delirious the Eye, who rivalled the Spectre as the last word in Golden Age surrealism.

Hailing from the Billy Wright pedigree, this copy of Keen Detective Funnies #9 is in well-preserved condition, the psychedelic cover illustration by John Patterson is disconcerting, employing powerful use of shadows and contrasting hues that retain their glow. Invoking the noirish imagery of the pulps to appeal to potential buyers, this issue is of particular note in this important series.
