You thought we were gonna send roses?
Hell, no!
We bring you the sordid story of the most famous crime ever perpetrated on the Day for Lovers!
In 1947, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby took over editorial control for several titles of the Prize Comics line, giving them much-needed revamps, upping the action and violence quotent.
This tale was from Prize's Headline Comics #23 (1947), the first issue under their stewardship.
When this story was published, the massacre was less than twenty years earlier, and the incident wasn't history, but news the authors read and heard as kids and now re-presented in four-color form.
It's not totally historically-accurate, but then, what dramatization is?
