The Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated series continues to recount the criminal deeds of the bandits, bank robbers, serial killers, and gangsters of yesteryear while reprinting some of the most notorious pre-Code comics of all time! Packed with timeless true-crime tales, including a rare appearance by Jack Cole, and the fine Dan Barry! Enlightening new foreword by Eisner Award-winning writer Jeff Jensen.

The success of this title made it one of the top selling comics of its day, rivaling even Superman and Captain Marvel, with sales exceeding a million copies a month. This allowed the publishers to hire the best artists, as evidenced in the top-tier work by the names above, as well as Ed Moore and Fred Kida (Airboy, The Heap).

"Even in today's more jaded times, the guilt-free exuberance the creators poured into every bullet and blood spatter is infectious. This Crime pays, with hours of fun." -The Seattle Times

Uncut and uncensored, the infamous precode Crime Does Not Pay comics are finally collected into a series of archival hardcovers. With brutal, realistic tales focusing on vile criminals, this was THE most popular crime comic ever, widely imitated, never equalled. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the stifling Comics Code Authority in 1955.
