Inspector Danger's Crime Quiz




                                                                 Regular reader of Lion comics will remember Inspector Danger Crime quiz very well . This was popular contest in Lion comics during the mid 90's . There was similar one  series in Muthu Comics also [Starting with alphabet D I think ]




The series Inspector Danger by Werner Wejp-Olsen, is one of the few contemporary Danish comics to have international success. The series started out in either the Danish tabloid magazineBilledbladet in 1974 under the name Max Møller, and has had a history of being published by the tabloid press like Se & HørUgens Rapport and Ekstrabladet. In comics, the series ran in the anthology seriesSeriemagasinet from 1983, until the series folded in 1984. Danger was also given his own series in 1988 (5 issues) and the series started getting sold to magazines and newspapers, both inside and outside Denmark.
Even though the series is a comic, this is not the selling point of the series. Around the World, the series is sold as crime puzzle for various puzzle magazines, e.g. the Danish magazine Tænkesport. It just happens to be a comic at the same time.



The main characters are the tough and rough Inspector Danger, all criminals’ worst nightmare, and Alfie, his dim-witted assistant and still a rookie after seven years on the force.

  1. After the success of Inspector Danger in Lion Comics, Editor S Vijayan has started another detective series in Muthu Comics and that hero is called Detective Drake.

    In fact, once, the number of episodes per book were doubled (Lion Comics Vengai Vettai) to cater to the needs of the respondents.
