    Private Eye   (about)
    Private Eye featured stories of hoodlums and small-time crooks, private investigators and the police, and some stories with surprise endings. Despite containing a good selection of contemporary crime-adventure and mystery stories by well-known authors, the magazine folded after only two issues, publishing material that was too little different from so many others.

    Public Enemy:   (about)
    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.
