Crack Comics

Golden Age Comic Stories is a great site for the best of art and comics from the age of pulps. I was scanning over the pages today and saw these covers to a little known line called 'CRACK COMICS'. The jokes just write themselves but that would force me to make light of children doing unsavory things just to get their next comic 'fix' and I don't work 'blue'. That kind of comedy might have done it for Red Foxx but I like to take the high road when it comes to my standup routines. So enjoy these covers you sickos and keep your comments to yourselves. Oh and check out 'Ned Brant' who strangely died his hair from orange to black in the space of one issue. Was there a reason for that? Or was he just tired of being beaten as a Ginger? No wonder he became the popular character he was always destined to be.

Strangely, I never got the "Crack" joke regarding this title until now. I do know it featured some of the BEST Golden Age art in Lou Fine's BLACK CONDOR, much of it reprinted in black and white by Alan Light (along with Fine's THE RAY) back in the early 1970's.

Thanks for the addition history on comics from that era. I can always count on you to educate me.
