Crime And Punishment


The Hangman’s rogues gallery included some of the most brutal criminals found in the Golden Age of Comics. Few had super-powers or flashy costumes, but each were able to cause murder and mayhem on par with just about any four-color psychopath one could name.

A fine (?) example of such treachery is found in the following story, “Crime Does Not Play.” It originally appeared in Hangman Comics #6 (MLJ Comics, Spring 1943) and was drawn by the severely underrated Bob Fujitani.
