PRE-CODE CLASSICS CRIME CLINIC Volume 1

Availability: In stock

$44.99
Collects Crime Clinic #1-5, 1951-52. Highly Recommended. Painted covers by Norman Saunders. Art by Leonard Starr, John Prentice, Gerald McCann et al. Publisher Ziff Davis's overlooked Crime Clinic offers more outstanding comics work. Ziff paid more than anyone else at that time, and they got the best writers and artists on their staff. This includes some superb art by John Prentice (Rip Kirby) on the offbeat "Dr. Tom Rogers, Prison Psychiatrist," a feature with two stories in most issues. Also includes artwork by Bill Molno, Vic Martin, Joe Genovese, the outstanding and barely known Mike Suchorsky, Irv Novick, Arthur Peddy, and Frank Kramer. #4 is a SOTI issue.

Publisher Ziff Davis's overlooked Crime Clinic offers more outstanding comics work. Ziff paid more than anyone else at that time, and they got the best writers and artists on their staff. This includes some superb art by John Prentice (Rip Kirby) on the offbeat "Dr. Tom Rogers, Prison Psychiatrist," a feature with two stories in most issues. Also includes artwork by Bill Molno, Vic Martin, Joe Genovese, the outstanding and barely known Mike Suchorsky, Irv Novick, Arthur Peddy, and Frank Kramer. #4 is a SOTI issue.

SOTI is, of course, a reference to the use of the strip as an example of all things bad in comics, by Dr. Frederic Werthan in his book, Seduction of the Innocent.

Ziff-Davis was another publisher who started series with odd numbers. In this case, the series began with #10 (#1) and 11 (#2), then switched to regular numbering with #3.

The painted covers by Norman Saunders are exceptionally nice work by him. He never disappoints.
