#4 - Top 12 Favorite Comic Book Short Stories

Just Her Speed - Crime Suspenstories #27 (Feb-March, 1955)
Al Feldstein & Bernard Krigstein, 6 pages

I love, love, love Berni Krigstein. Perhaps Master Race or even Key Chain deserve recognition as his 'best' work, but we are talking favourites here, so I have got to go with this taut little piece of comic noir. This story about a very powerful woman, but she doesn't even appear until the very last panel. Krigstein's artwork is very strong here, with inventive layouts and a some terrific facial expressions. He's one of the true greats, and I'm surprised that this story isn't mentioned more as one of his best.
