I don’t know how many stories artist Bill Everett did for Charles Biro, but this is the only one I have seen. I scanned it from my copy of Crime and Punishment #31 (1950). I have shown this story before, but these are new scans.
“The Button” falls into the category of a story as a primer in crime. The writer is telling the reader that details are important, that a successful criminal should beware of leaving any evidence, no matter how small, at the scene of the crime. When the story is set, 1947, they didn’t know about DNA, or scientific advances that have been made in the past few decades, but in this case they wouldn’t need that. A piece of clothing found at the scene of the crime that matches something a suspect is wearing would do the cops’ job for them.
