"Crimes by Women" dates back to 1950, a time before most of the art and technology of comics had been developed. For example, this was before man knew how to draw the hands of other men - look at those things: with only animals to use as subjects, this poor cockeyed cop is left with nothing but monkey's paws to defend himself.* The rest of the comic is drawn similarly, with improbably shaped people in poses that would require an additional spine, this one installed sideways.
The comic also suffered from the poor sound effect technology of the day. Things like BAMF! and WHOOSH! wouldn't be invented for another decade or two, so this comic was left with only ZOOM, ROARRRR, and BANG BANG to highlight the action.
But oh the action! Women driven by greed - one assumes from their poses they are desperate to raise the money for scoliosis treatments - into murderous schemes. "The Terror From Tacoma" would shoot a man just to watch him die! Her life was dedicated to excitement! SCREEEEE!
"Dell Mundane" on the other hand, launched a scheme to kill high-wire performers and reap the grisly profits from their deaths. I think that meant she went though their pockets after they fell into a squishy mess on the floor of the circus tent. Now how often could you pull a scheme like that until you either ran out of high-wire performers to drop or were fired for dropping them?
After slogging though 30 pages designed to make you fear the very nurse that delivered you, the comic then makes the genius move of using more of these murdering dames to sell you their wares. Here is a dress that probably accessorizes nicely with a cute broach or poisoned dagger. Hmmm... is that Mena?
In a final move that defies explanation, they advertise the Adjust-O-Belt which is deigned to make women "Look and feel like sixteen again!" Ummm... since most of these women started killing dudes when they were sixteen, do you have something that might make them feel older and slow them down enough for me to stand a chance?
* By the way, this is how I've always envisioned Daisy would meet her soon-to-be fiance. After they pulled out the scissors and re-inflated his lung, it would be love everlasting.
