Various: Exciting Detective Sampler. V1. 23 Dec 2011
Exciting Detective promised "excitement, action, violence, and constant movement", albeit on a rather erratic schedule. Despite that, it lasted for a mere 15 issues before succumbing to the wartime paper shortages.
A Canadian magazine of the same title ran for a period in the 1940s but reprinted stories from several different US magazines.
