Stagart, Fritz. Fritz Stagart was created by “Max Ladenburg,” the pseudonym of the German author Robert Heymann (Fritz Barton, Pat Conner, Prince Petroff), and appeared in Fritz Stagarts Abenteuer #1-80 (1905-1907); the series was reprinted across Western and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia from 1907 to 1910.

Fritz Stagart is a German consulting detective. He was a nobleman but discarded his title in order to better fight crime, which he does in Europe, Moscow, North Africa, and the western frontier of the United States in the last decades of the 20th century. Stagart fights the “Tunisian Pirate,” a gang modeling itself on Jack the Ripper, a cult of Satanists, and a murderer returned from the dead. He fights a Mad Scientist’s Horror Machine, the Horror with the Red Hand, “The Temple of Satan,” “The Pact with the Devil,” and “The Sea of Death.” He appears in stories with titles like “The House of Death,” “A Death in the Theater,” and “The Indian Prince.”
