Lawbreakers Suspense Stories 11, 1953
It's hard to know where to start with this cover, but I may as well begin by mentioning that this is possibly the most shocking and disturbing precode horror cover I've ever owned! The "Tongue Bandit's" eyes are simply riveting. The dialogue (in case it's hard to see) reads:I know you are a mute, Miss Kimberly, but even if you could yell, the people downstairs couldn't call the police. You see ... I already cut all their tongues out!Another interesting aspect to this cover is the standard (but perverse) practice of transposing aweful horror and sex; Miss Kimberly has some remarkable "headlights" covered only by a flimsy negligee!
