    Blackjacked and Pistol-Whipped Crime Does Not Pay TPB (2011) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Collects material from Crime Does Not Pay (1942-1955) #23, 25-26, 30-32, 41-42, 48, 50, 53-55, 57, 59-61, and 64-67. Gangsters, kidnappers, maniacal killers, and thugs of all stripes had their lurid stories recounted in Crime Does Not Pay! Featuring thrilling, brutal tales and disturbing, despicable characters, Crime Does Not Pay enthralled a nation and was the most popular comic book of its time. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the Comics Code Authority-yet it was also an inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman's reality-based EC Comics. See why this series was both revered and reviled in this unique "best of" primer! Softcover, 224 pages, full color. Cover price $19.99.
