Pre Comic Code Crime Stories!

Law Against Crime

Published from April 1948 to August 1948 by Essankay Publications Co this title sticks out as being pre comic code from its cover alone. The sight of a criminal being executed in an electric chair on the cover of the first ten cent issue is distinct to say the least. Each cover boasted that the stories inside were based in truth on real police cases and to a degree that is actually true. The cover of issue #3 has "The Lipstick Slayer" in bold red letters across it. A few years before there was a real life murderer known as, "The Lipstick Killer".
