Synopsis for "The Engraver"

A counterfeiter teams up with two fugitive gangsters to pass a lot of fake money to the public. He dresses as a swami and puts on a stage show, seemingly a bingo game, in which the swami pays out a lot of winners. But, er, he always needs change, at pay-out time. Soon this racket pays off well enough that the gang can recondition a derelict yacht, and turn it into a casino. In the casino, the losers still lose as usual, but the winners get paid off with counterfeit cash.

Jim Barr and Susan Kent attend one stage show, and Susan get paid off in fake bills. Jim analyzes the ink, and identifies the ink supplier (Grand Ink Company). That night Bulletman and Bulletgirl fly to the ink factory, break in, examine the sales records, and find an address for the Engraver. They fly to the counterfeit printing plant in an office building in the city, zoom in, and there's a melee. At one point Bulletgirl gets hit in the head with a very large bottle of ink, and seems stunned, which distracts Bulletman long enough for him to get head-konked from behind, with a steel pipe. They're both trussed up and left, alive and unsupervised, in a room that's filling up with gas. Bulletman finds some glass shards and gets loose, then breaks a window and frees Bulletgirl.

Meanwhile aboard the floating casino, the gang has a dispute about the disposition of their loot, and one of them gets shot dead by the Engraver. That's when Bulletman shows up and tells them how it's going to be. The Engraver shoots at Bulletman then runs away, and ends up in the boiler room, getting punched into an open furnace. He definitely dies, and not quietly.
