The Thief-Fight Against Crime-1954

The stories in FIGHT AGAINST CRIME were the kind of stories your mother and Dr. Wertham warned you about! They were explicitly violent, immoral and just plain lurid! With its cover designs and EC swipes, the publisher tried hard to make the reader think this was an EC title but it most certainly wasn't! Noticeably missing was EC's sense of humor and vague (if gruesome) morality. Still, here's an interesting tale with no listed artist. Reminds me of Howard Nostrand but that might well be just because of all the obvious attempts at emulating Davis, Wood and others here.
