    Four Color #13-24 Bound Volume (Dell, 1942-43). The real fun of collecting bound volumes is the fact that the comics inside can actually be read and enjoyed, as opposed to "look but don't touch" CGC-slabbed books. Here's another terrific volume of early 64-page Four Color issues, offered for your reading pleasure: #13 (Mr. District Attorney -- first issue), 14 (Smilin' Jack), 15 (Felix the Cat -- first issue, featuring art by Otto Messmer), 16 (Porky Pig and the Secret of the Haunted House -- first issue), 17 (Popeye and Wimpy), 18 (Little Orphan Annie's Junior Commandos -- flag cover), 19 (Walt Disney's Thumper meets the Seven Dwarfs), 20 (Barney Baxter), 21 (Oswald the Rabbit -- first issue), 22 (Tillie the Toiler), 23 (Raggedy Ann and Andy), and 24 (Gangbusters). All comics appear to have been VF or better before being trimmed and bound; all retain most of their original cover gloss and excellent supple page quality. The outside binding is tight and problem-free. Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $992.
