to the victim go the spoils

stories of unhappy spouses looking for ways to unburden themselves of their no-longer-welcome partners have long been the fodder of noir fiction. but this 1952 tale from ec comics' crime suspenStories #11, in which we vicariously partake of one grimly-determined housewife's methodical, punishing and stomach-churning recipe for murder, is like watching someone crawl through broken glass (but without a drop of gore) — a true testimony of dedication to one's art.
