Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Detective Action Stories, December 1931

I feel like I ought to know who did the cover art on this issue of DETECTIVE ACTION STORIES. It's very similar to other detective pulp covers I've seen. But I can't figure it out. DETECTIVE ACTION STORIES was one of the first pulps from Popular Publications. It wasn't a long-running success, but you can't blame that on the authors it published. There's a great group in this issue: Erle Stanley Gardner, T.T. Flynn, Frederick Nebel, J. Allan Dunn, and Eric Taylor. That certainly sounds like an issue worth reading.

UPDATE: The cover art is by William Ruesswig, as confirmed by a friend on Facebook. Thanks, Sheila!
