The Covers of Startling Detective Adventures


How startling were the stories in Startling Detective Adventures Magazine?  They were startling enough to keep the magazine running for ten years, from 1930 to 1939.  As you can tell from looking at the covers below, Startling Detective offered up the usual stories of crime, gangsters, murder, prison, and guns.  Each cover promised readers “the truth from police records.”

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to discover who did the covers below.  Sadly, some of the best work of the pulp era went uncredited.
