Great issue.  Here's the original Ward cover for it.

That's just unreal, isn't it? Ward is my favorite!!! I love Parkhurst, Brundage, Bowles, DeSoto and Saunders... but Ward is the Baker/Frazetta of pulps imo. Thank you for sharing this. How beautiful she is.

The October 1941 issue of Spicy Mystery, shown here, featured a cover by H.J. Ward.  The cover was swiped two months later, with artist Harold Bennett's take on it gracing the cover of the December 1941 issue of the Canadian pulp, Sure-Fire Detective.  That Canadian pulp reprinted a Black Hood pulp story, though it's not mentioned or depicted on the cover.
