Read it here: BORIS KARLOFF in "Mr. Wong, Detective" (1939)

This 3-part adaptation appeared in issues 41-43 of Popular Comics back in 1939, the year after the movie came out. It was scanned for comicbookplus by clarkkent54321, dsdaboss and tilliban, in that order. Thanks, guys. The art is credited to Jim Gary, who did a nice job on Boris.

Since it was an ongoing film series from 1938-1940 (Karloff did 5, with Keye Luke in the final, 6th film which was a "soft reboot" of the series.) adapting the first story was good promotion for the series.

The 2nd and 3rd films, "The Mystery of Mr. Wong" & "Mr. Wong in Chinatown" were released in 1939.
