Fox. Paul Patton is a staff photographer for the Daily Globe who has a knack for messing up shots of crime as they happen. He gets angry with himself for this and makes a camera which would attach to his belt (he can't drop the camera that way, you see). He decides to fight crime, so he can be on the scene when crime is committed and get better pictures that way. He is assisted by his girlfriend, reporter Ruth Ransom. He appears in stories with titles like “The Confession of Lucky Leonardo,” “The Murder-for-Profit Ring,” and “The Escape of Flaxey Dorgan.”
