Detective Comics #33 - pt. 2
This month's Speed Saunders story is nothing to write home about, except for the unusual plot hook -- while out hunting, Speed kills a moose with a dead man tied to its back!
Speed and one other man he rescues are outnumbered by natives 11 to 2 -- though for some reason these modern-day Native Americans are attacking with spears or hatchets instead of guns. The natives are consistently referred to as "breeds."
Speed volunteers to be the one to sneak out of the cabin and try to get help. The other two men in the cabin apparently think nothing of Speed being the only one of the three of them in a bright red sweater. Apparently, bright colors do not modify surprise changes.
This is the first adventure where Speed is referred to as a private detective; you may recall that in his first adventure he was with the FBI's River Patrol Division and, since then, it hasn't been clear who he worked for.
...And I had to skip the rest of the issue because readcomics.net was spamming me so bad.
