Public Enemy

Total Issues: 6+8=14

Public Enemy was Dell Publishing's attempt to cash in on the G-Man boom of the mid-1930s and featured the adventures of Lynn Vickers, Agent G-77. However, it never really caught on and only ran for six issues under its initial title. In August 1936 the magazine was renamed to Federal Agent and gradually changed to a standard detective pulp, abandoning Lynn Vickers and his colleagues, but it only lasted for eight issues under this incarnation before folding in November 1937.
