Detective Review #3 0

Most of the best story do not finish in this Issue, so that's good. However, that doesn't say they are all exciting, especially the one call "Shooting Lesson" who is though to read because in my opinion it's not a real comic. Quality is OK, but it's sometimes hard to see and read some letters in corner page. No super power characters, only detective with their thinking... However, first apparition of a woman detective character in Hope Hazard.Best story: Bruce Nelson...
