Adding /ComicBooks/Detail to my url still returns a 404

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace ComicBookGallery.Controllers
    public class ComicBooksContoller : Controller
        public string Detail()
            return "Hello from the comic books controller";

When I add /ComicBooks/Detail to my address it just returns another 404 error.

Am using VS 2017 Community could this be an issue? Get the same result in Chrome, IE and Edge.
