Crime Does Not Pay

Stephen Worth over at the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive has something hardboiled to share with us:
" ... A copy of Crime Does Not Pay from June of 1947. This particular comic book is not for the faint of heart. It's grusome and extreme. In fact, it marks the absolute peak of comic book sadism that led to the Publishers' Code of 1948 and the condemning of crime and horror comics by psychiatrist, Frederic Wertham in the book, Seduction of the Innocent. ..."
Crime Does Not Pay No. 52

Oh man, those stubborn-headed broads ...
