 Been reading some golden-age comics over at (formerly Going over some of the Centaur comics for info for my golden-age encyclopedia website and I am again struck by the talent that was working at this relatively short-lived company. In Keen Detective Funnies #6, there's a story written by prolific pulpster Norman Daniels and illustrated by Fred Guardineer, before he became known for doing backwards speaking magicians. Another story has artwork credited to Hoffman but shows some Milton Caniff/Frank Robbins type of style. Lastly, an early story by Will Eisner that's very much a hard-boiled story though still showing some of those atmospheric qualities he'd be honing to a razor's edge by the time of The Spirit.
