Alan Ladd, Star of stage, screen and comic books
Alan Ladd, an actor popular in the 1940s and '50s, had a comic book series from DC that went for nine issues in 1949 and '50.
In the comics Ladd was presented as what he was, a movie star, albeit a star who got into adventures apart from his movie career. According to the Grand Comics Database, "The Damascus Diamond," from Alan Ladd #1, is drawn by Joe Certa and Sy Barry. It takes its plot from The Maltese Falcon. Ladd's comic book co-stars story remind me of Sydney Greenstreet and Mary Astor.
