Trivia[]

  • Jim Steranko's cover illustration is also featured on a later edition of "The Crime Cult." Interesting enough, the original cover of "The Crime Cult" is used again on the later edition for "Hands in the Dark." Perhaps the switching of the two covers was a publisher's error. [Actually, Pyramid originally mistakenly switched the covers, putting the correct painting for THE CRIME CULT on HANDS IN THE DARK, and vice versa. They later released second printings of both - in much smaller quantities -  with the correct covers.]
