    Four Color (Series 2) #1-12 Bound Volume (Dell, 1942). Copies of Four Color #1 (Little Joe), 2 (Harold Teen), 3 (Alley Oop #1), 4 (Smilin' Jack), 5 (Raggedy Ann and Andy #1), 6 (Smitty), 7 (Smokey Stover #1), 8 (Tillie the Toiler), 9 (Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold, with art by Carl Barks and Jack Hannah), 10 (Flash Gordon, a classic issue featuring Alex Raymond strip reprints), 11 (Wash Tubbs), and 12 (Walt Disney's Bambi #1). Of course, the big draw here is #9, which features Barks' first Donald Duck art and represents the beginning of a long and wildly successful career as the "Good Duck Artist." The covers are bright and clean, and the pages are supple and range from tan to brown. There is some wear to the hardcover binding, with the outer layer of the spine having mostly detached, and some separation to the hinge of the front cover. Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $2,864.
