Hi Everyone, I am trying to find short english mystery or detective comics that ends with a quiz where the answer is given after the story is finished or written upside down.
A very close example is "inspector danger's crime quiz"
It can be normal comics but short - 4 pages max - or comic strips or webcomics.
And the must if for the answer to be outside the plot so that it's a brain teaser to think about the answer.

any help?

Eagle's Can You Catch a Crook? might fit the bill. It started out as a standard strip called Sergeant Bruce, C.I.D. but in Vol. 13 no. 43 (27/10/62) it was revamped. initially it ran to three pages and the reader would be prompted at various points to see if they could find a clue. A text box at the end would reveal what the clues were. The strip ran until Vol. 17 no. 2 (8/1/66). By then end it was down to a page and a half or just a single page.

There was also Brett Marlowe - Detective in early issues of The Lion where the last panel explained the clue(s).
