True Crime has always been a best seller and in 1949 that was a stone cold fact. Horror and True Crime Comics were outselling everything, including superheroes. Stories about crime were everywhere and long before TV, there was a national obsession with bad guys doing bad things. Crime might not have paid in real life but it sold a lot of magazines and comics.
This week SGC has included a story from a 1949 edition of True Crime Comics. Little Angie Big Boss is a blistering account of crime, corruption and murder. The tale is 1940’s melodrama at its best. SO…. what are you waiting for? Read the story!
