#9 on the cover of this Canadian reprint.
Last issue of that series (an incomplete reprint of USA vol.2 #1).
JVJ got this as single pages in plastic sheets.
There are no ads and no filler stories, but five complete crime and western tales.
Alext toth art in last story ("The Terror").
Splash from first story (see thumbnails) has been prominently featured in Fredric Wertham's SEDUCTION OF THE INNOCENT.
Scan and edit by Tilliban
Comic from the JVJ Collection comic.

Comment: Am not too happy with my own scan here, because HORRID printing like this provides for imbalanced scans. If anyone wants to take a photo-shop-shot at this, contact me. I can fix you up with the raw scans (but they are off-square and show the plastic sheets). Ah, sometimes these old books are hellish…

Comment: They are slightly blurry, I dunno how much this can be fixed. Sharpening can only do so much. It could be cleaned up and straightened at least. And I have uploaded a good touched up version of the original (American) cover at GCD which could be used to salvage this one. Just let me know. :)
