Suspects

Suspect Motive/reason

Karlos Boroff He felt he should have the reels, because his performances as the monster is what made Teddy Jones's films a success.
Roy Horrorhausman Without him, none of Teddy Jones's films would have been much to look at, so he felt he had as much right to the print as anyone else.

Culprit Motive/reason

Projectionist as the Movie Werewolf
To steal a valuable old film.

Reception

In Ray Tate's review for the Comics Bulletin, he thought Dan Slott "breathes surprising life into that old formula", and that Joe Staton and Andrew Pepoy of the Simon and Ajax comic strip "enhance the clue finding with dead ringers of the gang, and caricatures of some of the famous involved in monster filmdom."[1]
