Golden Age Appearances

  • Thrilling Comics #3-40, 42-44, 46-52
  • America's Best Comics #9


  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
  • The Ghost was based on a Pulp character of the same name who had his own magazine.
