It's a story about an innocent girl, Scarlett, who falls for "bad boy" Rocco...
...who happens to be an ambitious gangster in Prohibition-era Chicago!
This is Part 3 of a multi-blog post, telling a cross-genre story over several blogs, encompassing both crime and romance in equal measure with an adult-oriented plotline and lots of violence!
You can read Part 1 in Crime & Punishment™ HERE and Part 2 in True Love Comics Tales™ HERE.
Scarlett was an easily-impressed teen when she fell for Rocco Conselmo, a charismatic gangster working his way up the ranks of the Chicago's Prohibition-era underworld.
As her lover became involved in progressively-more dangerous situations, the once-star-struck girl came to realize the life-style she thought was glamorous and exciting was, in fact, sordid and lethal.
And the man she loved was becoming hard and cruel...
Scarlett's not so innocent now...
You'll find the thrilling conclusion on Friday at Atomic Kommie Comics™!
The original novel is by Sinclair Drago (aka Harry Sinclair Drago, who also wrote Westerns under the pseudonym "Bliss Lomax".)
Illustrated by Myron Fass.
The comic's scripter/adapter is unknown.
This tale has been reprinted several times in the '40s and '50s, but not since then...until now!
