Crime Fiction Magazine Covers from the 1950's

Discovered these in a dusty cupboard at my parents' house where I'd left them some ten years ago! These were published in Greece from the mid-thirties onwards and I imagine they would have been quite popular because they ran for decades. Each issue had a collection of serialised famous crime, spy and science fiction stories (mainly American and British). Some of the characters featured were Flash Gordon, Nick Carter, Lemmy Caution, Poirot and even James Bond! Great stuff. I can't see who the illustrators were for these but I just love the quality of the printing, the style and the energy in the pictures. These covers are from 1956.
