Was putting my Straight Arrow bound volume away and found these. Two volumes of Crime and Punishment. I got the first one (#1-9) from a friend on the east coast who found it at a lawyer's estate sale. Several years later, I got the next volume (10-21) at the Chicago con. Weird how these two bound volumes exist independent of each other. Man, these are fun!

Volume #1

Gleason didn't mess around. Some brutal covers. There is that one cover where they're trying to kidnap a kid by offering her ice-cream...completely creepy!

Crime is still affordable for the most part and some nice choices :headbang:

Right in the neck. "Take that, masked man with bad teeth". Hope he doesn't drop the baby. I say baby, she's pretty big. And has a steely grip on Mr Bunny there. Kept hold of him all the way down the ladder.

He's got a nice suit hasn't he, The Fighting Yank. Mr Bunny doesn't look too shabby either.

Assuming that it also has nice colors and pages it certainly should be.

It would be a felony not to share this one I just discovered in the junk pile!  Someday, you punks will discover how cool crime books are.

Oh, and if you like some dames with your crime, here's a cool one found at the same time.

Looks like the Wolfman driving that Caddy at the nice couple coming out of the "No Tell" Motel.

A recent crime comic addition to my collection. I just need issue #3 to complete the run. Just in trying to put together this 8 issue series I have an appreciation for how hard it is to find some Atlas books in anything other than low grade. My criteria has been VG+ to VF- and midgrade copies seem as elusive as you'd expect high grade to be. 

Rocky Jorden is no Johnny Dynamite, the best of the pre-code private eyes, but these are a fun read. I'm not sure if I'd hire the guy, his clients seem to wind up dead, and then he goes about solving the crime. He tends to rack up his own body count as well, but the local cops seem to take him at his word it was self-defense every time. Like most of his contemporaries he's got an faithful and attractive secretary who doesn't seem to mind that he's often late with the paycheck, and is the only dame around who doesn't try to kill him at some point after kissing him.

What what it be worth if it were a comic book?
