    Double-Action Gang Magazine:
    Double-Action Gang Magazine was a short-lived member of the “Double Action” magazine group and claimed to be oriented to “guns, gangsters, gun molls and stories of true gang life”. It ran on a vaguely bimonthly schedule for 4 years. The final, October 1939, issue was confusingly renamed to True Gangster Stories despite containing the same mix of fact and fiction as before.

    Double Detective:
    Double Detective ran for five years on a mainly monthly schedule, notching up a total of 41 issues from the original publisher (Frank A. Munsey) plus a single, later, issue from Popular Publications. It is chiefly remember today for introducing the pulp-hero character known as “The Green Lama”. In between the two runs, Munsey launched Love-Crime Detective as a replacement, but it only lasted for five issues.
