ZERO, Ghost Detective!

One day to go! We're giving the vampires a rest today. Instead, we've got ghosts!! But no real super heroes. Oh, get over it.

Today we've got Zero, Ghost Detective! Kind of like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, only without the slayer abilities...or the vampires. :-) Zero spent his career chasing vengeful spirits and sending them on their way.

Zero's ghost detecting days ran in FEATURE COMICS #32-72 (May 1940-October 1943).

Since his adventures tended to run only 5 pages, I'm giving you two!

Yeah, I'm not saying a word this time.


  1. Thanks for posting these stories!

    I'm not sure if you or your readers would be interested, but at the Five Earths Project, writer Libbylawrence has written a couple of stories featuring the DAUGHTER of Zero, Ghost Detective -- Dr. Drusilla Zero.

    The following link is for a story called "Zero, Ghost Detective: The Chosen," which has a take on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


  2. I like the woman's estimation of our hero in the final panel..."You're really Zero!" My sentiments exactly.
