Here’s a fun true-crime story from 1948 — if you think murder, mayhem, and abuse are fun, that is! “The True Story of Lester Brockle” claims to be based on a true story about a vicious criminal who ended up in the electric chair. We found it hard to research the facts because all of the names have been changed! Still, it’s one of the more compelling stories from a classic crime comic.
