Johnny Peril is somewhat a detective of the occult and "adventurer of the weird."
Peril was a lieutenant in the Army Air Corps in World War II, and was once shot down by Japanese fighters over Burma. He later found work as a newspaper reporter, and had his first encounter with the paranormal when he solved the murder of one Phillip Murzon with, apparently, the aid of Murzon's ghost. His exploits have taken him to several unexpected places. He has battled baddies in his hometown in New York, to the jungles of the Congo, and even on the moon.
