Roberts & Co. is a private detective firm consisting of George and Dot. Older brother George is athletic and patient, while younger sister Dot is “small, slim and dark. Quiet-looking. She looks demure and docile, but she isn’t.” They take on various fantastic enemies, such as evil Mad Scientists who reduce their victims to “fetid bubbling pink foam.”
