Kane, Calvin. Calvin Kane was created by “Harrison Storm,” the pseudonym of Bruno Fischer (Ben Bryn, Ethan Burr, Ben Helm, Rick Train), and appeared in “Entertainment for the Dying” (Dime Mystery Magazine, Jan. 1939).

Calvin Kane is the most famous of the Disabled Detectives. Kane has a withered right leg and a twisted body. This disability forces him to crawl along the floor when he moves, which has earned him the nickname "The Crab Detective."
