Anton Kordo
Synopsis
This is the tale of Anton Kordo, a "true split personality," who vacillated between regular family man and canny thief whose signature was that he carried a vial of nitroglycerin in his pocket so the police were afraid to take him down for fear of being blown up.

Indexer Notes

This is the "transvestite" story as identified in Overstreet and consists of a three panel scene where Kordo dresses up as a woman to escape capture.
