Dan Dunn (Secret Operative 48) by Norman Marsh & Al Andriola (0340-) 1st Appearance September 1933 -  Dan Dunn first made his way into the newspaper in September of 1933.    Norman Marsh originally created the character earlier in 1933 as Detective Dan.  He was published as an odd-side 'comic-book' which lasted only a single issue.   Dan Dunn was a copycat strip of  the great Dick Tracy.  Steel-jawed Dan Dunn worked for the Secret Service and spent his life on the trail of evil doers attempting all sorts of crimes. It found a modest following on the coat-tails of Dick Tracy's popularity and lasted a full 10 years.  Much of the sales of Dan Dunn are to those fans of Dick Tracy, looking for his legacy elsewhere in comics.   At reasonable prices the full-size Sundays move well. Later in the early 40’s, most papers reduced this strip to half-size or less.  They still sell fairly well, probably due to the take-over of the strip by Al Andriola who would later create Kerry Drake.  Dailies sell at a similar clip as the Sundays.
