    Stories and art by Henry Kiefer and others. Violent, offbeat pre-Code crime comics from D.S. Publishing Company. These early issues featured stories inspired by true crimes, such as the story of legendary Old West bank robber "Western George" Leslie. In the 1820s, two men make a business of selling corpses to medical schools, even if they have to kill them themselves. This story was based on the Burke and Hare murders, and possibly on an earlier story in issue #43 of Crime Does Not Pay (1942). James Hall confesses that he uses hitchhiking as a tool for murder, earning the name The Hitch-hike Killer. "Make It A Million" Leslie; Corpses - Cash and Carry; The Ledgend (sic) of the Lone Wolf; Death Thumbs a Ride; Inside Witness; Entry in a Diary; Il Diavolo. 48 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
