The Many Adventures of Johnny Dekker


Johnny Dekker was a private investigator who starred in 13 pulp paperbacks in the late 40s.  Though the paperbacks were published in Britain, they were written in the “American style” and one thing that is obvious from looking at the covers is that Johnny was good with a gun and always had a femme fatale nearby.

Though he wasn’t credited on the covers, the Johnny Dekker novels were written by British comic book artist, Mick Anglo.  Anglo was unique in that he not only wrote the paperbacks but he also drew the covers as well.  Here, courtesy of the imagination of Mick Anglo, are some of the many adventures of Johnny Dekker.  My personal favorite is Nuts To Nylon:
