CRIME DOES NOT PAY ARCHIVES VOLUME 1 HC

Uncut and uncensored, the infamous precode Crime Does Not Pay comics are finally collected into a series of archival hardcovers! With brutal, realistic tales focusing on vile criminals, Crime Does Not Pay was one of the most popular comics of the 1940s. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the stifling Comics Code Authority. Now revered and mythic, this collection of the first four hard-to-find Crime Does Not Paycomics features a fine roster of Golden Age creators and a new introduction by Matt Fraction (Iron ManCasanova)!
 
Dark Horse has treated Comics Bulletin and its reviewers to an exclusive five page preview, enjoy!
