Today's classic comics post is from the Feb 1951 issue of Wanted #34. It's a fun little 8-page Loot & Doc "Crime Lab" tale that my pal Karswell believes is illustrated by the great Gene Colan, who is currently suffering a health crisis (our thoughts go out to Gene). I'm not as convinced as Karswell about the uncredited artists identity, but maybe someone out there has a better idea. We are open to suggestions and please visit Karswell's THOIA blog today for an even darker classic crime/horror tale from Crime Mysteries (circa 1953).
Let's also give a shout out to the fine folks at The Hero Initiative, the first federally recognized not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators, writers and artists in need. So many of these talented folks lack health insurance after decades spent entertaining all of us, but they often seem to have been dumped in the waste bin by the very publishers who've gleaned record profits over the years from their labors. Bravo to the Hero Initiative for stepping up in Mr. Colan's time of need.
