Abstract
“As Douglas Field notes, the postwar period was “characterized by an anxiety over boundaries,” and not exclusively the boundary between us (the United States) and them (the USSR) (6). For comic books, the boundaries of decency were always being contested. The comic book Crime Does Not Pay for instance, subverted the illusion of a moral and enlightened America by showing the discord in our own society through “true crime” narratives. Chris York demonstrates, however, that as criticism of comics escalates, Crime Does Not Pay subtly changes the tone of its feature narrative in an attempt to walk a fine line between appeasing critics without losing readers.” (Introduction, 13)
