POST # 24 - "ONE FOR DE-MONEY" by Angelo Torres

Angelo Torres was one of the first artists to be featured here, and you will very likely see his name and artwork here quite often, if I can help it! The more I revisit his art for Warren Publications, the more respect I have for his bold and finished style.

So, when he is escaping from the bell-tower after committing robbery/murder, he slides down the ROPE.... yee hee HEE HEEYAH !
