Recent acquisitions have highlighted another
pulpoid feature of the Sexton Blake Library covers - the cheesecake
To the right: Story's first credited entry in the SBL, no. 372, Murder - With Love!, December 1956.
(No art credit)
The cover blurb reads: "Author of the book of the Hitchcock film: THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY"
|Story's second SBL, no.374; "Jill was a child of the sun..." Also a child of the Barbie doll factory, if the uncredited cover artist is to be believed.||No. 436. Artist De Seta might even have read the book; a torch and keys actually feature in the plot. But is that meant to be Blake or his pal Splash Kirby?|
|Apologies for the colour balance on the cover scans. Copies of the SBL come in a variety of conditions, pretty poor at best.|
