    Four Color (Series One) #13-25 Bound Volume (Dell, 1941-42). Here's the second half of the original Four Color run, in a beautiful bound volume similar to our previous lot. Included are #13 (Walt Disney's Reluctant Dragon), 14 (Moon Mullins -- first issue), 15 (Tillie the Toiler -- first issue), 16 (Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot -- the first solo Mickey comic book), 17 (Walt Disney's Dumbo, the Flying Elephant), 18 (Jiggs and Maggie -- first issue), 19 (Barney Google and Snuffy Smith -- first issue, as well as first with Four Color on the cover), 20 (Tiny Tim), 21 (Dick Tracy), 22 (Don Winslow), 23 (Gang Busters), 24 (Captain Easy), and 25 (Popeye, featuring strip reprints by Segar). As before, these are incredible copies, with off-white, supple pages and glossy covers. The binding is very tight and clean, with no hint of any problems whatsoever. All comics appear to have been VF or better before being trimmed and bound. A simply outstanding bound volume, filled with incredible Four Color treasures! Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $4,246.
