Charles Biro helped to create the crime comics  genre with the landmark title Crime Does Not Pay.  The title had an instant effect on the marketplace, and is described in The Comic Buyer's Guide Standard Catalog of Comic Books as "the comic book that got the entire crime comics genre rolling-and may have unwittingly contributed to the formation of the Comics Code  years later."

Blackjacked and Pistol Whipped

Blackjacked and Pistol Whipped
Check out the shadow.

By: Bob Wood, Charles Biro, Jack Alderman, Dan Barry, George Tuska, Carmine Infantino, Dick Briefer, Bob Montana, Fred Guardineer, Pete Poplaski

Gangsters, kidnappers, maniacal killers, and thugs of all stripes had their lurid stories recounted in Crime Does Not Pay!

Featuring thrilling, brutal tales and disturbing, despicable characters, Crime Does Not Pay enthralled a nation and was the most popular comic book of its time. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the Comics Code Authority-yet it was also an inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman's reality-based EC Comics. See why this series was both revered and reviled in this unique "best of" primer!

* Crime Does Not Pay editor Bob Wood brutally murdered his girlfriend and was later murdered himself! This fascinating sidebar is detailed in an essay by cartoonist, historian, and co-editor Denis Kitchen.

* Contains a selection of stories from across the series' run in the 1940s, a new cover, an illustrated essay, and an introduction.

* All-new Crime-inspired cover by artist Pete Poplaski with colors by Bernie Mireault.

Will Eisner's Preventive Maintenance Monthly
Now Collected!

Will Eisner-best known for his influential comic book series The Spirit and his groundbreaking graphic novel A Contract with God-believed in the teaching power of comics, and from 1951 to 1971 he produced PS magazine for the U.S. Army.

This Preventive Maintenance Monthly (called PS because it was a postscript to the standard technical manuals) was aimed at teaching American soldiers everything about weapons safety for vehicles, aircraft, firearms, and electronics.

Eisner illustrated these vital lessons in drawings, pinups, step-by-step guides, and comic strips.

This collection contains the best of Eisner's 227 issues of PS, reproduced in a portable digest format. This relatively unknown work by Eisner is finally explored-the missing link between his comic books and his later, more mature graphic novel style.


Male Call 
Miss Lace is back!

Milton Caniff's famous good girl, created just for servicemen during WW II, known to G.I. Joes everywhere as "Lace," is available to all her fans in a deluxe hardcover art book reprinting the entire run of the strip.

Move over Rita Hayworth - sultry, sassy Miss Lace and her daily adventures are given the royal treatment with a host of extras including a detailed intro by noted Caniff historian R.C. Harvey, complete with unused art, documentary materials, advertising art, and more.

Excellent companion book to the recent Caniff hardcover.
