Plot

Relive the days when gangsters ruled the streets in this gripping collection of notorious pre-Code crime comics!

True life criminals Al Capone, Legs Diamond, Pretty Boy Floyd, Dutch Schultz, Lucky Luciano, and John Dillinger are featured alongside colorful pulp fiction characters with rods ablaze. These mobsters flaunted their sexy gun molls and ill-gotten gains of big cars and fancy suits, living outside the law until getting their just deserts in the end.

Features masterful creators Charles Biro, Dick Briefer, John Buscema, Gene Colan, Jack Cole, Reed Crandall, Fred Guardineer, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Bernie Krigstein, Mort Meskin, Bob Powell, John Prentice, Mike Sekowsky, Leonard Starr, Marvin Stein, Alex Toth, and many others. These Senate-investigated stories are fully restored--over 20 full-comic stories in all!

There are over 200 pages of action-packed comics plus an in-depth essay by editor and designer Steven Brower. Brower's comics-related books include From Shadow to Light: The Life and Art of Mort Meskin and Golden Age Western Comics.
