Hardy, Jim. Jim Hardy was created by Dick Moores and appeared in the comic strip “Jim Hardy” (1936-1942). Jim Hardy is a strapping armored car guard who is unfairly suspected when his car is hijacked. Hardy manages to catch the real crooks and clear his name. After this Hardy moves to Los Angeles and becomes a reporter on his uncle Joe's newspaper, where he reports on and fights crooks of all persuasions. He eventually returns to the east, to "Hub City," where he becomes a private detective and apprehends muggers, bank robbers, racketeers and corrupt politicians. Hardy's best friend is Pinky, a policeman, and his love interest is Betty Lee, the daughter of the mayor of Hub City.
