    Description

    True Crime Comics #2 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (Magazine Village, 1947) CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. The proliferation of violent crime-themed comics in the late '40s set the stage for the even more controversial horror titles to come. Striking cover art on this first issue of the title is provided by Jack Cole, who also contributed interior art for this issue. Besides the violent cover, the issue attracted attention with an injury to eye panel and hypodermic needle panels, all of which earned citings in both The Seduction of the Innocent and Parade of Pleasure. Just two copies have been certified nicer than VG/FN 5.0 to date, and this is the finest. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $1,463. CGC census 7/06: 1 in 7.5, none higher. From the Crippen Collection.
