    Crackajack Funnies #13-36 Bound Volumes (Dell, 1939-41). The first appearance of the Owl (#25) and the first comic book appearance of Ellery Queen (#23) are two of the highlights of these two bound volumes. While the books themselves are damaged on the outside, the comics on the inside are in better condition than almost any surviving copies you'd be likely to find of these early Golden Age issues. The front hardcover panel of the first volume, containing #13-24, is detached, while the other volume is beginning to come loose at the hinges, but the only comics that are at all affected by this are #13 (front cover detached from rest of comic) and #15 (two-inch tears through almost all interior pages). Approximate Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $2,200. From the Random House Archives.
