Johnny Black
Created by Neville Steed (pseudonym of Norman Sharam)

Seems you just can't keep a good bloke down.

When he loses his pilot's licence following a crash, plucky dashing young JOHNNY BLACK sets himself up as a private investigator, opening the Black Eye Detective Agency.

He may be grounded, but Johnny still manages to find enough danger and adventure in 1930s England to make life interesting -- especially with his faithful companion/lover/sidekick Tracy by his side. Ripping yarns, right out of Boys' Life.

Neville Steed is the pen name of Norman Sharam, who worked in advertising in London; writing and directing TV commercials. He also wrote several books about P.I. Peter Marklin.


Respectfully submitted by Kevin Burton Smith. Thanks to Eric Chambers for the lead.
