Let's start the new year off with the comic book version of Monogram Pictures 1938 film Mr. Wong, Detective, featuring Boris Karloff.   

(This was the first of six Mr. Wong films from Monogram, based on the character created by Hugh Wiley who appeared in twenty stories published in Collier's from 1934 to 1955.  Karloff  played the detective in the first five films, while Keye Luke took over the role for the final movie.  [My snarky comment for the day:  It's amazing that they cast a non-white in the role.])

Mr. Wong, Detective appeared in five parts in Popular Comics #38-42 (April 1939-August 1939).
