Feature Books -- Secret Agent X-9 -- November 19, 2014

Feature Books started in 1937.  Each issue was devoted to a single character.  Initially, it reprinted comic strips, but for about two years the 1940s it published original comic adaptions of novels, including The Maltese Falcon.  Then it returned to reprinting comic strips. 

Secret Agent X-9 was a comic strip created by Dashiell Hammett and drawn by Alex Raymond.  Hammett left first, and then Raymond.
