Crime Does Not Pay!

Twit wit: Comics artist Matt Fraction tweeted this bold, old cover from “Lev Gleason Publications”‘ notorious Crime Does Not Pay! title last night with the comment: “Great cover… Or greatest cover? #COMICS!!!”

Not to leave well enough alone, this morning: “Three of you who retweeted that cover are clearly pedophiles trying to fit in #crimedoesnotpay #neitherdoespedophilia.”

Amusingly enough, Crime Does Not Pay! was one of the early victims of the wave that led to the Comics Code. It makes the grown-up NC-17 fracas over Blue Valentine look, well, more grown-up at least. [Fractional blogging.]

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
