The Strange Case of the Absent Floor
I've managed to track down all the installments of The Secret Files of Doctor Drew from Rangers Comics. No, not the Dr. Drew from Celebrity Rehab. This was a strip by Jerry Grandenetti in the 1940's. While he worked at Will Eisner's shop on many of the Spirit sections, he was also doing this Spirit-esque strip. Like The Spirit, Dr. Drew was usually a bystander in the story. He used the same letterer (Abe Kanegson) and one-time writer (Marilyn Mercer). Here is The Strange Case of the Absent Floor from Rangers Comics #47 in June 1949.
