    Crackajack Funnies #1-12 Bound Volume (Dell, 1938-39). This was the fourth comic title released by Dell, after Popular Comics, The Funnies, and The Comics. All these were newspaper strip reprint books, and Crackajack followed this format for its earliest issues. This volume includes Crackajack #1-12, all file copies that were bound and trimmed into a hardback book designed for office reference use. Somewhere along the way this particular volume lost the front cover to issue #1, but all the rest is here: Detective Dan Dunn, Freckles, Wash Tubbs, Apple Mary, The Nebbs, Red Ryder (starting in issue #9, which was the character's first appearance in comics), and more. And yes, issue #5 with the "nude" woman on the cover is here too! Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value for group = $1,906. From the Random House Archives.
