Artwork of the Day: Dime Detective Magazine (by Rafael DeSoto)


by Rafael DeSoto

This is from 1943. There is a lot happening with this cover. The handcuffs suggest that the man with the guns just escaped custody. Maybe the woman in red helped him with those pliers that she’s holding. Is she now trying to steal a license plate or replace the old one? If she’s trying to do a replacement, I think she has more important things to worry about. It’s going to take more than new plates to make people not notice all the bullet holes on that car.

This cover was done by Rafael DeSoto, who has been featured many times on this site and who will be featured many times in the future.
