Valentine, Captain. Captain Valentine was created by C.S. Montanye (Canary Kid, Johnny Castle, Archibald Catfitz, Dave McClain, Jeff Vance) and appeared in twelve stories in Black Mask from 1920 to 1925, beginning with “The Necklace of the Pharaohs” (Black Mask, May. 1920).

Captain Valentine is a Lupin. He is European, of unknown origin—“Captain Valentine” is his pseudonym—and is a suave, melancholic, world-weary wanderer, traveling where he will in his yacht Queen Anne. He is experienced and known to many crooks in Europe and Africa.
