Parents concerned that comic books presented disturbing and subversive imagery to their children would have had their worst fears confirmed if they had seen this pre-Code gem: a typically gory account of serial killer Belle Gunness’ reign of terror in 19th century Indiana.

The colorfully titled “Mrs. Bluebeard” originally appeared in the grandaddy of all true-crime comics, Crime Does Not Pay #44 (Lev Gleason, March 1946). The story was drawn by Jack Alderman.
