Joy, Hiker. Hiker Joy was created by James B. Connolly and appeared in seven stories in Collier’s, The National Weekly in 1919, beginning with “The Jack-o’-Lanterns” (Collier’s, The National Weekly, June 28, 1919).

Hiker Joy and his best friend Bill Green are a pair of hard, clever, homeless teen gang members in Brooklyn. They stumble upon a German spy and use their wiles to trap the spy for the police. Joy and Green go on to use their cunning and cleverness to help America in a variety of other matters, including serving in the trenches during World War One, helping Naval Intelligence on a cargo ship, and fighting U-Boats and Zeppelins.
