Private investigator series have rarely, if ever, endured in the North American market, if elsewhere. Espionage series seem also less resilient, although correlating series as an espionage series unalloyed with other genres seems difficult.

"Famously in the late 1960s, Jim Steranko also ran afoul of the Comics Code when it came to the romance between Nick Fury and the Contessa (*****not superheroes*****, but it is still interesting)".

I have to ruminate on whether "Normal Adventure Hero" protagonists may have Life Model Decoys (L.M.D.s), advanced jetpacks, flying automobiles, invisible automobiles which can toggle amongst colors, and myriad other examples of advanced technology.

The listing of in-continuity titles lacks mention of Dakota North. Subsequently, her integration into the broader shared universe occurred. This situation reminded me of other private investigator properties subsequently integrated into the broader continuity.

Helpful Interjections on Taxonomy: Mike Benton produced a guide called The Illustrated History of Crime Comics. He did not provide an entry for MOKF and/or G.I. Joe [or any S.H.I.E.L.D. series or Remo Williams adaptations]. He did cover series based on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. S.H.I.E.L.D. serves as an obvious homage to The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The occurrence of the Daily Bugle in this issue may serve as a Captain America crossover, as the Daily Bugle debuted in a Captain America tale.

It's a stretch but didn't Sherlock Holmes show up in a Batman comic once? He showed up in the Eclipso series in the 90s. Does that mean he was folded into the DCU proper?

Holmes has been around a long time. He could have also appeared in Marvel or anywhere else.

Does it count that he appeared or was referenced in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?
