The Best Of The Worst

Knock out issue! Great cover. And the kind of writer line-up that made Dime arguably the best crime fiction pulp of the 40’s. Thank you for full issue scan.
To tag this cover Sam Cherry was probably a mistake, if I may say so. Art looks a lot more like DeSoto’s, in fact !
This was my mistake, it is Sam Cherry’s art allright.
(But I had to read it twice to be sure)
All things considered, this cover could NOT possibly have been the work of Sam Cherry ! NO-WAY ! NEVER !
This is basic DeSoto’s art, please compare to :
The woman’s face is almost identical in both covers.
Plus, Cherry’s women are cuter, he never could have missed this one.
Time (if not the administrator of this site) will certainly repair this unfortunate error !
Rafael DeSoto’s art confirmed.
