Keen, Jack. Jack Keen was created by Alfred Edgar (Napoleon Berg, Jack Durrant, Iron Hagan, Martin Holt, Octavius Kay, Phantom of Cursitor Fields, Professor Powerby) and appeared in a number of stories in Kinema Comics and Film Fun in 1931 and 1932, beginning with Kinema Comics #582 (June 20, 1931).

Jack Keen is a Great Detective modeled on Sexton Blake. Keen has a boy assistant, Bob Trotter, who is a child of the streets similar to Sexton Blake's Tinker and Nelson Lee's Nipper, although Trotter misbehaves somewhat more often than Tinker or Nipper.
