    Cocomalt Big Book of Comics #1 (Chesler, 1938) Condition: FN. This promotional comic received a scarcity rating of "8" in Gerber's Photo-Journal. The comic certainly offered an eclectic mix: radio comedian Joe Penner (whose big catchphrase was "Wanna buy a duck?") shares the cover with six (not seven) dwarves, and inside there's everything from Little Nemo by Winsor McCay to the science fiction hero Dan Hastings (drawn by Fred Guardineer). There's also Jack Cole art in these pages. The cover is by Charles Biro. A glance at the back cover tells you how old this comic is -- it shows Frank Leahy before he became coach at Notre Dame and Hall of Famer Alex Wojciechowicz before he even started playing pro football! This copy has cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2006 FN 6.0 value = $645.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
