The Time Bullet’s 13-day countdown to Halloween concludes with a true crime story that makes the guy in Saw look like Bob The Builder! From Crime Does Not Pay #53 (Lev Gleason Publications, July 1947), here’s “The Master Of Murder Castle.”
The art is provided by Fred Guardineer, who obviously had a lot more up his sleeve than Zatara the Magician!
Well … all’s well that ends well I guess. If you’d like to read this story and other equally demented true crime tales in higher fidelity, be sure to check out Dark Horse’s Blackjacked and Pistol-Whipped: The Best of Crime Does Not Pay!
In the meantime, return to the Time Bullet Nov. 2 for an All Soul’s Day special featuring the Duke Of Darkness! Happy Halloween!!
