Sheridan, Shanghai. “When Jack Sheridan’s father was killed by the invaders in 1931, young Jack was adopted by his father’s wise and wealthy old friend, Chan Sing-Tan. Jack vowed to avenge his father’s death, and swore never to rest until he had driven the invaders from the land of the peaceful Chinese.” Toward that end he learns the sciences, “the Hindu art of Escape, boxing and jiu-jitsu, ancient Chinese magic and illusion,” and becomes friendly with the local politicians. He needs all of these things to assist “Madame Kang Shy-Check” [sic] against Wu Fang, a traitorous Yellow Peril who has captured Chiang Kai Shek. Sheridan appears in stories with titles like “Trapped by Wu Fang,” “Kidnapping in Dragon Alley,” and “Ma-Ma Mosquito.”
