When DC Comics picked up the license in 1947 for the radio program, Gang Busters, it entered the crime comics fray, presided over by Crime Does Not Pay and its myriad of imitators. DC had a ready-made audience for Gang Busters, which was a perennial popular show and identifiable by comic book readers. This story from issue #1 (1948) is more of the format of a traditional crime comic. Gang Busters later moved into the DC-style of the fifties, especially after the Comics Code was instituted. The title lasted at DC until late 1958.
The story, “Murder Was My Business,” with a traditional career-ending arrival by the killer at the electric chair, is signed by George Roussos.
