Created by Richard Wolfe to share some of the gems of his collection of crime comic books from the 1940s and 1950s, this site features a gallery of more than 100 crime comic covers in all their lurid and exploitative glory. Comic fans and anyone else who gets a kick out of trashy titles like "Crimes By Women," "Gangsters and Gun Molls," "Crime Does Not Pay," "Murder Incorporated," and "Teen-Age Dope Slaves" will thoroughly enjoy this site. Although thumbnails are only available for a few of the titles, all images load quickly and are of excellent quality. Wolfe also offers commentary on several of his favorites, the text of some articles on the history of crime comics, and some related sites.
