Title Bio

This title holds the honor of being the first comic with a metallic logo. The title changes to Crime Does Not Pay as of issue #22, but returned for two additional issues, a non-numbered issue and #23, an Atomic Comic, which contained reprints. The title was an anthology book, with the lead feature carrying the Silver Streak. The book was also the home of Dickie Dean the Boy Inventor, Captain Battle, Sky Wolf, Daredevil, the Saint, and Basil Wolverton's character Scoop Scuttle.

There is an issue #24 which is the second issue of the Next Issue Project, a concept spearheaded by Erik Larsen, utilizing public domain characters, and producing new content with modern-day sensibility, often humorous in nature. The specific issues are titled and numbered to be an continuation of some long-dead Golden Age title. Larsen gathers an eclectic group of creators for each one-shot issue.
