Before the war, Joe was one of New York's Finest. He fought for his country in France, but a bullet to the leg sent him home early. Realizing that his wounds would force him into life behind a desk if he remained on the force, Joe traded in his badge for a bottle of cheap whiskey. During the third month of his binge, he met an Englishman who wrote anti-German propaganda and practiced occultism on the side. Claiming that he sensed Joe had "a gift," the man set about initiating Thursday into the occult. Magic doesn't pay the bills though, so Joe decided to use his police training as a private investigator for the Herrick Agency

Joe's knowledge of the occult and his strong right hook served him well, winning him the respect of his fellow detectives. But while on the trail of the Gorilla Gangsters, Joe was magically frozen and stuck in a meat locker. By the time someone found him and thawed him out, forty years had passed. Joe returned to the Agency, but his old friends were long gone, replaced by a bunch of young punks. He does the best he can to teach these modern-day kids what it really means to be a detective.
