Apaches (III). The Apaches (III) appeared in the German dime novel Apachen - Aus dem Dunkel der Großstadt #1-69 (1920-1921).

These are not the Native American people but rather “apaches” in the Victorian sense: members of a street gang. The Apaches are active in New York and have a series of unusual adventures, fighting Mad Scientist engineers, the Mafia, homunculus-makers, "The Vampire of New York," the Captain Mors-like "King of the Air," the “Hypnosis Institute,” the "Devil of Wall Street," the "Slaves of the Insanity Gas," and the "Sailboat of Death.” The Apaches appear in stories with titles like “The Elf Dance in the Woods,” “The Invisible Lodge,” and “The Highway Robbers.”
