In 1954, the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency targeted this comic series for its graphic violence, eventually leading to the creation of the repressive Comics Code Authority. Issues #30 to #33 of Crime Does Not Pay are finally collected in this deluxe hardcover, which includes "Million Dollar Robbery"-perhaps the first story in US comics history drawn by an African-American artist-and featuring a new introduction by comic-book giant Howard Chaykin (Marked Man, American Flagg!).
