Maybe the reason I like Quality's KEN SHANNON is because it's so similar to the many great OTR detective series I also enjoy like RICHARD DIAMOND, YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR and ROGUE'S GALLERY. The lovely Reed Crandall art in some installments doesn't hurt. This early story isn't by Reed, though, and our hero doesn't yet show the bizarre jawline that made him so visually distinctive. This almost looks like the Bob Powell studio to me. Some good digs at early TV in this "episode."
