Weird Mummy Detective Stories


A long forgotten Golden Age character, Ace Bandage: Mummy P.I. was the victim of a curse that bonded his form with that of an ancient Egyptian mummy; a mummy wrapped in Justice, as it turned out. A licensed investigator, Bandage conducted all of his cases from the confines of his wrappings and sarcophagus, wheeled around on a modified hand truck by his freakish and nauseating assistant Insidria Outre, the inside-out girl. Despite the seemingly universal appeal of a mummy wielding blazing .45's of vengeance, the strip only ran from Weird Comics issues 2-5, shedding readers at an historical rate before being cut to make way for the even more unpopular Hat Master: Master of One Thousand and One Hats.*

Ace Bandage would make a good character to bring back because it makes sense why a 1930 hardboiled detective could still be alive today...He's a mummy!!! and they are immortal.

Though call me crazy, he should have a fedora.
