Marked For Murder

Today's offering is an entertaining self-contained thriller from Thorpe & Porter called One Body Too Many. The uncredited artist knows his craft, using varied and dynamic panel layouts while always serving the story. There's a captivating monochromatic palette consisting of black, grey, and four of five shades of orange.

There is very little information available about the Marked For Murder series. It was probably published in the early 1960s. Thorpe & Porter were well-known for repackaging American material, and it is unclear whether this story is original, American, or perhaps reprinted from an European comic.
