Collection: Charles Biro

Charles Biro (1911-1972) was one of the early creative pioneers of the comic book industry. He was instrumental in ushering in the crime genre in 1942 with Crime Does Not Pay, an unusually gritty series that became a target of the anti-comics hysteria of the '40s and '50s. His longest professional affiliation was with the forward-thinking Lev Gleason Publications, for whom he edited Daredevil (not THAT Daredevil), Crime Does Not Pay and, in 1949, an experiment to produce comics for an adult readership, Tops.
