Note: for the next couple of weeks we'll be looking at a classic Crimebuster story written by Charles Biro and drawn by Norman Maurer. If you want to see the all-new Crimebuster story The Case of the Lacrosse Rape Hoax, then please click the highlighted text, and thank you! Issue #2 will start up online in February 2017!
2016 had the most entertaining Presidential campaign I'd ever seen, and the first couple weeks of this administration have been just as entertaining. I'd be tempted to say that the naked obstructionism and the hitler-calling and the hitler-punching and the vagina hats are marginalizing the democrats and causing the middle-of-the-road voters to reconsider voting for this party.
I'd be tempted to say that, but the media is primarily hard left progressive Obama and Hillary Clinton worshippers. The media presents this obscene, un-American behavior as normal, and cheerleads for it. Every stupid thing, every little bit of solidarity and resistance, the media's gonna re-post it in an effort to raise buzz and chatter. I mean, this week someone wrote a word in the sand on a beach, and CNN wrote a frigging story about it like it was news!
So, we are going to see what kind of influence the media actually has. Most media companies told us all throughout 2015 that Donald Trump was a joke and a fake candidate, and all through 2016 the media companies told us that Donald Trump was a scary mean man who racists the race race racism, but that didn't win Hillary Clinton the election. Anyway, entertaining.
This week, we've got some more action. Norman Maurer draws a night scene, and as per usual in 1946, the colorists have about eight colors to work with so everything's just as bright as it is during the day. Panel two and panel eight contain those distinctive silhouettes.
I'll also say that the circular panel might have just been a contemporary 1946 thing that broke up the monotony of rectangular panels. Here, the circle panel doesn't indicate a scene change as it did earlier in the story. It seems like there's one on every page.
