Information thanks to the Grand Comics Database

Super Detective Library was a digest sized, 188 page comic with painted covers and black and white interiors that ran from 1953 to 1960 and appeared twice a month.

It featured a rotating roster of detective and science fiction stories from English, Canadian and American artists and writers, and an artistic and writing style that you don’t see anymore.

Most issues were original stories and art, however they would from time to time fill the S.D.L. with reprints of newspaper strips such as America’s Rip Kirby.

The years are possible not accurate because at first there were 2 issus each month but after the change of publishers 1 each month.
