Roberts & Co. Roberts & Co. was created by Ray Cummings (Melvin Cone, Dr. Feather, Martynn & Brett Gryce, Gregg Haljan, T. McGuirk, Scientific Club, Tama, Tarrano, Tubby, Uncle Tubby, Vitos) and appeared in “The Case of the Frozen Corpses” (Dime Mystery Magazine, Jan. 1939) and “The Case of the Tortured Corpses” (Dime Mystery Magazine, Mar. 1939).

Roberts & Co. is a private detective firm consisting of George and Dot. Older brother George is athletic and patient, while younger sister Dot is “small, slim and dark. Quiet-looking. She looks demure and docile, but she isn’t.” They take on various fantastic enemies, such as evil Mad Scientists who reduce their victims to “fetid bubbling pink foam.”
