    Famous Funnies: Carnival of Comics #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. It would be five years before the Golden Age of comics would even begin when, in 1933, this collection of newspaper reprints would be issued as a giveaway. Regarded as the second comic book, this promotional giveaway was M. C. Gaines' brainchild. Gerber's, The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books lists this as "rare," with only 11 to 20 copies estimated to exist. If you are looking for early and rare, here is the one for you. From a historically significant perspective, this would appear to be an undervalued nugget. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $5,480.
