“I Met My Murderer!” proclaims the cover of Lawbreakers Always Lose! #10, published way, way back in 1949. For one, we kind of dig this comic book cover because the title of the series is a complete sentence. (Quick trivia question: How many films can you name where the title is a complete sentence, and of those, what is your favorite? Ours, clearly, is The Empire Strikes Back, but only the one released originally in 1980, not the souped-up, re-digitized detritus George Lucas would re-release later over the years.). Second, the guy on the cover has a cool hat. That’s probably a small consolation for meeting his murderer – although he may be the murderer. We’re not sure.
