Crime Does Not Pay — the true-crime comic that enjoyed massive circulation throughout the forties and fifties — was a hit with readers, but an easy target for Seduction of the Innocent author Dr. Fredric Wertham! The 1954 Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency hammered Crime Does Not Pay for its graphic scenes of violence, ultimately leading to the formation of the rigid Comics Code Authority. Issues #34 to #37 of this visceral, provocative series are now collected into one fine, head-walloping hardcover — with a new foreword by modern crime maestro David Lapham (Stray Bullets, Murder Me Dead)!
