The hero of a long-running series of boy's stories (BOY'S PAPERS) written by Murray Roberts (the pseudonym of Robert Murray Graydon) and published in Modern Boy, a weekly magazine published by Amalgamated Press through the 1930s. Very British, CJ wore white ducks, smoked cigars and worked out of Titanic Tower in the mid-Atlantic. In the course of battling for good he survived robots, giant insects, runaway planets and an Earth plunged into darkness. His exploits deeply affected the impressionable mind of a young Brian W. ALDISS, among others of that generation. Some CJ stories, including The World in Darkness (1935), were republished as issues of the Boys' Friend Library.
