Crime Reporter #1 (CGC 5.0 with cream to off-white pages) $325: :news: Sold to Comcav! 

This is the first issue of a short three-issue run published by St John in 1948. Nice Bob Lubbers “headlights” cover. Clean cover with no stamps, writing or other ink marks. Let’s hope this Brunette has a life net waiting for her. Looks like a long way down.

Terrors of the Jungle #17 (CGC 5.5 with cream to off-white pages) $750: :news: Sold to Comical Situations. Thanks again Troy!

Another gorgeous classic L.B. Cole cover. Terrific black background. I like the effect of dripping blood to highlight the title. Note the position of the young lass about to be burned at the stake- dead center of the comic. Immediately your eyes focus there. Then they slowly peruse the surrounding savagery.

Another extraordinary cover by the master!

Used in Seduction of the Innocent.
