"Kane Keen!" - Mad Mondays!

Private eyes have been the subject of many adventure/detective stories and have a long healthy history. Dashielle Hammet's "Sam Spade" and Raymond Chandler's "Philip Marlowe" are surely the archetypes with many followers and it was probably "Martin Kane" on that brand new doohicky television (starring Ralph Bellamy) that inspired the name for this story. All those legions of private dick's were certainly a melting pot of inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman and Jack Davis is 1953 when for "Mad" the comic book #5 they did...

'KANE KEEN! Private Eye"...

Enjoy!














Talk to you soon.
