    Crime Does Not Pay #27 (Lev Gleason, 1943) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. There are no better no crime comics than the ones in this, the first crime title. Replete with gruesome stories, bitter endings, deadly double crosses, this provides just the kind of wholesome entertainment that Frederic Wertham so heartily endorsed for the little 'uns. This is an attractive high-grade copy and well worth the interest of the crime connoisseur. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $406; VF/NM 9.0 value = $578.
