The Best Of The Worst
By Sam Cherry (Canadian edition), repainting U.S. cover by Gloria Stoll :
Was Sam Cherry Canadian?
No, Cherry was a U.S. citizen, born in N.Y. City.
“Popular Publications Canada” reprinted U.S. series but with different contents, may have been the reason why they asked for different covers, nonetheless inspired by the former ones.
Like for exemple, these two covers, the first (U.S.) published in Nov. 1947 :
and the second (Canadian) in May 1950 :
This cover is REALLY similar to this one:
They aren’t the same piece of art, but so much about them is similar that there has to be some kind of copying here.
And then there’s the titles. “I’ll kill you often” and “two deaths have I”. Well, two deaths is more often than most people get! : – )
