Zero, Ghost Detective in "The Caretaker's Ghost" (Quality; 1942)

Here is a cool bonus story for you! Zero, Ghost Detective would exterminate evil ghosts by any means necessary. He would also help the ghosts of the innocent bring their killers to justice. These ghosts were drawn to him, as he was drawn to them. Other than that, he had no magical abilities, but he did possess an extensive knowledge of occult lore. If that failed, he would fall back on conventional detective work. Zero was fairly good at improvising on the spot. “The Caretaker’s Ghost” is from Feature Comics #59 (Aug. 1942); originally published by Quality, and illustrated by Al Bryant. The Catacombs acknowledges "The Digital Comic Museum", as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

"And the deadly apparition fades into permanent nothingness against the dawn."

Wow! No afterlife for the old caretaker, not even hell. Kind of a nihilistic ghost story.
