Cover of Detective Comics #1 From 1937

March 1937, DC Comics

Cover artwork is representing a "Chin Lung" or possibly Sen Yoi from the story "The Claws of the Red Dragon." Vincent Sullivan artwork. This issue also included the introduction of Slam Bradley in the story "Streets of Chinatown." Credits for that tale are none other than "Jerome Siegel" and Joe Shuster - yes, that Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster of you-know-what-Superman fame.
