Number 2254: Gun-mad Lil gets revenge!
Lilly goes on a rampage. Her mind must’ve snapped because she not only kills bad guys, she kills witnesses to her killing bad guys. By then becoming a murderer herself, she has law and order visited upon her.
The story, “Gun-Mad Lil,” appeared in Saddle Justice #7 (1949), an EC publication, done when EC was still following trends rather than creating them, as they later did with horror comics, Harvey Kurtzman’s war comics and later Mad.
The story was drawn by Ed Waldman, who signed his name in tiny letters on the bottom of the splash panel. Waldman was a journeyman comic book man who did some freelance work at EC during the forties.
