Notes

  • Published by Detective Comics, Inc..
    • At this time, More Fun Comics and New Adventure Comics were still being published by "Nicholson Publishing Co., Inc."
  • This issue Gumshoe Gus returns, last seen in Detective Comics #2, for one last appearance.
  • Last issue for Mr. Chang.
    • Mr. Chang villain, Hugo Von Gratz, has got exactly the same modus operandi as a later Detective Comics villain, Hugo Strange.
  • Speed Saunders villain, Roskoffin, has got exactly the same modus operandi as three later Action Comics villains: Dr. Kichung (Action Comics #8), Herbert Handers (Action Comics #19), and the Ultra-Humanite (Action Comics #20).
    • This almost certainly was the earliest interspecies brain transplant to take place in a DC Comic.
