Manic Monday Bonus--Ri-Co-La!!!

Man, those cough drop commercials really don't give you any idea just how dangerous the alpine hone can be!

OK, OK, the cover is the teensiest bit exaggerated. There's no gun play, there are no lederhosen-clad locals trying to snuff ace detective Young King Cole.

Even the splash page is a bit overblown:

No, Cole isn't using the awesome powers of the alpine horn to keep the hoodlums at bay.

Nope, the bad guy is merely trying to make his escape down the mountain...

...but Cole figures out a way to stop him!

And thus ends one escape!!

The alpine horn--don't mess with it!!

From Criminals On The Run Volume 4, #3 (1948)
