Indexer Notes

The splash panel adds a commentary on contemporary comics history, in addition to a self-justification for the publishing of violent material : 'Comic magazines are currently being subjected to a barrage of criticism for portraying crime in a favorable light; for making crime and criminals glamorous. True Crime Comics does not do that. True Crime Comics is devoted to showing that crime is evil, and ugly. True Crime Comics proves that criminals never win!'
