Newspaper comic "Urge to Kill"

Anyone remember the cartoon from the 1950's that had the text "Urge to Kill" with a frying pan flying at someone's head?   I don't know if that was the title.  The artwork looked like that in "They'll Do it Every Time."  If you know where I can see "Urge to Kill" please email.

IIRC, "Urge to Kill" was a part of Jimmy Hatlo's They'll Do It Every Time. Sometimes it would simply be the words, with an arrow pointing to an angry character. After the tag-line caught on, there might be an Urge to Kill panel within the Sunday strip.

Do hope my memory's working properly.

erwin-k, Your memory is outstanding!  MUCH better than mine.  I looked at countless Hatlo cartoons at the site linked below & none had the "Urge to kill" words or the flying skillet.  But I recognized the drawings right away & his thanking of people who gave him ideas.  For awhile he even gave their addresses!  I had no idea this comic ran for so very long.  I only read it in the 50's/60's. I should have come back to this site & seen your prompt reply over 4 yrs. ago, DUH.  Thanks a MILLION!  Gene Jacobs.  https://oldtales7.wordpress.com//?s=jimmy+hatlo&search=Go
