"Just Plain" Jones
Created by Norbert Davis (1909-49)
"My feet are killing me."
-- "Just Plain" Jones
An investigator for The Suburban Mortgage and Trust Company, "JUST PLAIN" JONES is an endearing character, tough as any pulp eye, complete with brass knucks, and a .38 Police Positive, but plagued by sore feet.
A great gag, bringing a touch of world-weary humanity to the guy, and clearly a forerunner to some of pulpster Davis' later, greater pulp detectives, such as "Bail Bond" Dodds, Max Latin, Doan & Carstairs and Ben Shaley.
