SHERLOCK HOLMES "Love Thy Neighbor"

He's more popular than ever with new series on both BBC and CBS...
...and like both those efforts, this tale was part of another effort to "update" the Greatest Sleuth of All to contemporary times, which in this case was 1955!
This never-reprinted tale from Charlton's Sherlock Holmes #1 (1955) has several aspects in common with the other tales from that short-lived series:
Yet another Dr Watson look-alike, Frothingham...
...again, set in present-day (1950s) America...
...and, again, the illustrator leaves the ear-flaps off Sherlock's deerstalker!
Both the writer and artist(s) of these tales is unknown.
None of the stories is signed, and the art style seems to be a combination of the techniques of several different illustrators.
We'll be back soon with another tale of mystery..
