The Best Of The Worst
Do you have the back cover of this? I’d like more information. Is she Russian?
Updated to add: Never mind
The back cover is a full-page ad for Avon Books. Other printings include the blurb, “Chicago gangster blasts his way through the heart of Europe” – so I’d say yes, she’s Russian.
In another case, she is Dorena, a circus artist “dressed in a gay peasant dress, cowering the side of a big cage, while a number of very ferocious jungle beasts charged at her”.
Oscar Mike Foxtrot Golf – !
That’s really shameless. To their great credit, the “Notes” on that page justly attribute the artwork.
… and Big-Man art by William Wills.
Hmm… Not William Wirtz, but William WILLS (comics drawer and occasionally cover painter)
I agree. Catalog of Copyright Entries 1947 says cover illus. by William Wills.
