Verdict was a crime fiction magazine that enjoyed a brief run in 1953. Though only four issues of Verdict were published, the magazine still featured work from notable names like Raymond Chandler, Cornell Woolrich, William Irish, Henry Kane, Dorothy Hughes, Rex Stout, and others. That’s enough to make this magazine far more popular among modern collectors than it was among readers when it was first published.
Below are the four covers of Verdict! Sadly, I have not been able to find any information on which artist (or artists) should be credited for those covers.
