Big Town

 BIG9   (DC, 1951-1958)

and 1951 National Comics Publications, Inc.

There are a million stories in the naked city, and this crime comic chronicled many of them through its run in the 1950s. Big Town is a bold and brassy place peopled by bigger-than-life characters. And through it all walks ace crime reporter Steve Wilson and his beautiful assistant Lorelei, uncovering the stories that make their city tick. A neon-lit evening stroll through its streets might result in Steve and Lorelei finding a millionaire inventor-turned-hermit, a murder hidden in a traffic accident, or a construction scam using defective steel in a school. Steve and Lorelei are always on the scene, ready to stop the evil men who would bring down their city.
