    Pep Tec:   (about)
    The issues seen are partial reprints of US saucy pulps such as Vice Squad Detective and Spicy Detective Stories, so it is quite likely that this is actually a UK magazine (as the only known issues are in the UK) and that the listed publisher and price are a smokescreen.

    The Phantom Detective   (about)
    The Phantom Detective was Standard Magazine’s response to the launch of The Shadow Magazine by Street & Smith. Although it ran for far fewer issues (170 instead of 325) its less frequent schedule meant it held the record for the longest-running single-character pulp, lasting for over 20 years.
