A Bombshell Explodes - Crimebuster Returns

The idea for this cover was cribbed/adopted/ripped off from Crimebuster's first appearance in Boy Comics #3. Something that was done, in days long ago, was publishers would release the first issue of a comic but give it a later number. Sometimes, this was done in order to dupe unsuspecting comic readers into thinking that the comic had a substantial following, enough to make it into a third issue of continuity. For example, the comic "Jetta" by Dan Decarlo did this. In the case of Boy Comics by Charles Biro, #3 took up from where another comic, Captain Battle, finished after issues #1 and #2.
