    Cover by Harry Sahle. Contents do not match cover. The sixth issue of this run consisted of a new cover used to recover different remaindered comics dating from the late 1940's to early 1950's and several variations exist. This variation contains the remaindered comic - Murder Incorporated (1948 1st Series) #14 - and it was re-covered by the publisher, Rural, without page 1 of the first story. Murder Incorporated was one of the more notorious pre-Code crime comics. Despite the nickname, Jack Gregory is no gentleman. Adam Richetti is a bank robber notorious for joining forces with Pretty Boy Floyd in the 1930s, when both he and Floyd are implicated in the Kansas City Massacre. "Gentleman" Jack Gregory; Bill Hale...King of the Murderers; Jungle Thirst; Trigger-Happy Richetti. 32 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
