Our hero Speedy is riding his swell bike when he discovers...
A) What kind of panel numbering is 1,2, LATER, 4?!?
B) Our "hero" is clearly just walking his bike in the first panel--his butt is not on the seat--so what the hell is he doing? Is he just snooping? Walking up to random windows hoping to find cfimes being planned?
C) Granted, this is 1947. So sure, pay phones--and even households with telephones--probably aren't as prevalent as they would be in later decades. But surely there's a quicker way to notifying the authorities than riding your bicycle all the way to the police station? Certainly there must be a pay phone, or a home with a phone, or a business with a phone that you're going to pass on your way there!!
D) Maybe crooks should be more careful, and not lay out their entire plots in a room with a broken window--right next to the street?
E) Not so much a question, but I love these ads that pitch their products by outright claiming that children can use them to thwart crime and reap huge cash rewards!!
Don't worry, ladies--Scwinn has you covered, too:
