Back in the day when I am sure Detectives were a big thing which is they had them there were Detective magazines. I have a few questions about them other then most likely the companies who published them may be bought out or business closed Why doesn't anyone publish Detective magazines like they had back then or do they? Also were the magazines comic books or like a paperback book filled with various detective stories?

I used to buy Analog and Asimov's SF mags for a long time and I know that Dell magazines also published an Alfred Hitchcock magazine and an Ellery Queen magazine which I believe were mainly detective stories, I assume that they are still going. The were digest size mags that had evolved from the old pulp mags.

the reason a lot of the publishers went of business was because most of the working staff in the industry got drafted during WWII,and by the time the war ended,people lost interest.

I'd love for Detective magazines and comics to get popular again. Hell I'd be amazingly happy at a new run of Ms. Tree.
