    Crime Does Not Pay #33 Double Cover (Lev Gleason, 1942) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. A Charles Biro cover that Overstreet calls "classic" is the highlight of this stunning issue. Didn't this beauty's mother tell her not to associate with cleaver-wielding psychos? And as you can see, the fellows in the background are also guilty of hanging with the wrong crowd. Highest grade yet assigned by CGC for this issue. Rudy Palais interior art. The back-cover ad is a collector's item in itself, as it appeals to the boys of America to contribute all of their old magazines to paper drives. Now we know why Golden Age comics are such rarities. CGC notes, "1st cover 7.5, interior cover 9.0". Overstreet 2003 VF/NM 9.0 value =$367; NM 9.4 value = $475.
