Hillman Periodicals didn't have the production numbers of other comic publishers of the 1940s, and by the mid 1950s they were gone from comics, but they brought forth some iconic titles, and were one of the first to concentrate on the popular genre of crime comics. CRIME DETECTIVE COMICS was always a cut above in its five-year run, including artwork by such masters as Fuje, Kreigstein, McWilliams, Breifer, Tuska, Powell and others. It was known to push the limits, and was cited in the infamous Seduction Of The Innocent. CRIME DETECTIVE COMICS should have been gathered into one large collection before this, but it took Gwandanaland Comics to make it happen!
