Valentine, Nick. Nick Valentine was created by Emile Tepperman (Marty Quade, Ed Race, Suicide Squad) and appeared in “The Case of the Talking Dead” (Strange Detective Mysteries, Mar. 1941) and “Death Can Be Beautiful” (Strange Detective Mysteries, May 1941).

Nick Valentine is the “ace investigator” for the A.P. Service newspaper syndicate, based in New York City but working around the U.S. He lives the life of a gentleman of leisure, solving crimes for the A.P. and letting their reporters write the cases up. Unfortunately, his lazy life is often interrupted by strange, unnatural, and even occult crimes, such as the corpse left in Valentine’s apartment which tells Valentine about how it was murdered.
