Forgotten Books: IT RHYMES WITH LUST by Drake Waller, Matt Baker & Ray Osrin (1950) - Chapter 1

This 128-page digest-size comic novel was published by St. John (the publisher who brought us Tor, Atom-Age Combat, Whack, and comic book adventures of Jackie Gleason, Abbott and Costello and The Three Stooges) back in 1950. The story is by Arnold Drake and Leslie Waller (writing as Drake Waller), with GGA favorite Matt Baker and Ray Osrin providing the art. 

It's a cool, noirish, relatively adult story told in six chapters, and because it's so dang long, I'll be running it in six parts, beginning today. I hope you'll join me over the next five days to read the rest. We are all deeply indebted to the scanner called Krackalacta for posting it on ComicBookPlus. 

Tomorrow: Chapter 2 of "It Rhymes with LUST"
