Inspector Kent of Scotland Yard debuts in Detective 19 (Sept 38). There is a little British flavour to the series, despite the name, and even less character to the titular hero.
This story pits him against his arch-foe (actually his only foe), The Raven. In this story, the Raven steals an invisibility machine. Scary looking device, and its effects don’t last as long as they might. Kent does not do a very impressive job in this case. He is saved from being shot by the man he falsely accused of the crimes.
Inspector Kent appears once more in Detective Comics, a few months down the road.
Bart and Sally make it to the church in this issue’s chapter of Spy, by Siegel and Shuster, but don’t make it all the way through the ceremony before being called back to work.
Sally is at her sarcastic best, “note how well-dressed we are for the occasion.” They are sent out after Rina Rinaldo, a mercenary bomber.
Rina has a compact mirror that also functions as an explosively destructive ray, although in the end she winds up killing herself with it.
We never do see the completion of the wedding ceremony, but it must have occurred at some point between this and the following issue.
Steve Malone’s second story gives the character a small supporting cast: a secretary, Jeanne, and a buddy/sidekick, Big Jim, a boisterous drunken Russian.
Steve and Big Jim chase down and catch bank robber Ferrini,which culimnates in a battle in the cockpit of an airplane. Shame that the art is not up to the task of showing this.
