(Dan Turner) Hollywood Detective

(Dan Turner) Hollywood Detective started off as "pure" Dan Turner, reprinting half-a-dozen Dan Turner stories in each issue, most reprinted from Spicy Detective (usually with changed titles and a degree of rewriting). With the September 1943 issue the title changed to Hollywood Detective and the magazine started featuring other writers as well, although still retaining a couple of Dan Turner stories (and a Dan Turner comic strip) in each issue.

The magazine maintained a rather irregular schedule, but did manage to produce 59 issues over a period of 9 years.

There were at least 7 issues of a British reprint edition.
