Girl Detective. Issue 1-8

Comic Book - 2015
Rate this:
"Velda: Girl Detective" is a multileveled representation of the more lurid of the 1950s crime comics and is portrayed as if it actually existed as a classic Golden Age comic. The comic series was more than a passing homage to the noir films and hard-boiled detective school of writing of the 1950s as it included in certain issues as special features a Velda paper doll kit and the complete 1955 Velda pinup calendar to provide authenticity. The comics also included vintage parody ads as well as featurettes such as "Hawkshaw Hawk, Bird Detective" and "Neolithica: Girl of the Pleistocene" to entertain readers. Though the work of fiction, the comics were presented to the audience as if Velda actually existed and had her private eye investigative adventures during the 1950's in the big city.
