Another short-lived comic book anthology series from the fifties, the claim to fame of Crime Mysteries was that it reprinted comic strips from various crime and detective pulps, including private eyes Jerry Jasper, Dan Turner and Don Grady (“The Man of a Thousand Faces”), Queenie Starr (“The Glamor Girl of Hollywood”), Dr. Lance Storm (“The Hunter of Enemies of Justice”), Sally the Sleuth, and The Fantastic Dr. Foo, whoever the hell he was.
But no matter how many detectives they crammed into its pages, the covers often featured vampires, ghosts, ghouls, and other “Weird Menace” enticements.
Beginning with its seventh issue, Crime Mysteries absorbed Crime Smashers, which had ceased publication two months previously.
