Here's the second scarce issue of the notorious crime comic from Magazine Enterprises, The Killers. Featuring "The Assassins", Rice of the New York Homicide Squad, Scott Hunter vs Mr. Zin the hatchet killer, Ace High Private Eye, and the seemingly out of place "Drums of the Jungle".

The cover by Ogden Whitney:

Strangely enough, I got my copy from Indonesia. It had been bound with some sort of four hole punch and glued at the spine, so I was able to get it cheap(er) and take the holes out in Photoshop. It took a while, but it was worth it to get scans of these issues.
