a hucksterg scan,
and Yoc edit.
Which is a partial reprint of original US comic #2:
Containing the famous Jack Cole 'Murder, Morphine and Me'.

The cover was redrawn, presumably as the original was too violent.

The Canadian ed omits these 2stories, as its only 36pgs (not 52)
'Murder is a Short Road' and 'Demons Dance on Galloway Moor'
comic story / 6 pages (report information)

My copy missing its cf, so have incorporated the CF from JeffxCary to complete the book.
Unlike a lot of Canadian reprints from this era the book is NOT censored. Only the cover and some ad pages are changed.
Two stories were omitted for page count reasons.

The scans a nice and large and well worth a look.
