Shag & Bones. Shag & Bones were created by Russell Bender and appeared in five stories in Ten Detective Aces in 1938 and 1939, beginning with “Rhapsody in Bullets” (Ten Detective Aces, Aug 1938).

Shag & Bones are a pair of Bellems. “Shag” Roberts and “Bones” McPherson are “two poorly paid small-loan company investigators” who usually work together. Quite reluctantly they’ve become famous for solving famous murder cases. Their police contact is Lt. Michael Canavan of Baltimore Homicide.
