Here we have a fairly typical pre-Code soap opera story. The interest is in the fact that we also have its reprint, just two years later, doctored so heavily by the then-new Comics Code as to be considered perhaps the most extreme example of Code interference! Much fun to compare so we here are alternating the pages of the original with the censored and rewritten version.

Don Heck isn't one of those artists who never got respect from the fans and critics. No, at one time he did, in fact. But over time, his work became looser, more simplified, and newer fans didn't care for it. Give me Heck in the '50s and '60s, though, and you've got a master class in comics storytelling.
