Larkin, Bob. Bob Larkin was created by Erle Stanley Gardner (Black Barr, Major Copley Brane, Terry Clane, Bertha Cool, Ken Corning, Speed Dash, Jax Keen, Barney Killigen, Lester Leith, Señor Lobo, The Man in the Silver Mask, Perry Mason, Ed Migraine, Patent Leather Kid, Phantom Crook, Paul Pry (II), Doug Selby, Pete Wennick, White Rings, Gramps Wiggins, Bob Zane, Sidney Zoom) and appeared in nine stories in Black Mask from 1924 to 1932, beginning with “Accomodatin’ a Lady” (Black Mask, Sept. 1924).
Bob Larkin is a Bellem. His choice of weapon is a billiard cue, for he had been a juggler for fifteen years, and that led him to prefer the billiard cue as a weapon rather than a gun.
