    Description

    Nickel Comics #1 (Dell, 1938) Condition: VF-. A very rare copy of the pocket-sized Dell one-shot. Measuring 7.5" x 5.5" and totaling 64 pages with a soft cardboard cover, the book contains black-and-white "Bobby and Chip" comics by Otto Messmer (creator of Felix the Cat) as well as Bob the Bugler, Wyoming Willy, Miss Adventure and others, plus puzzles and stories. This copy is in remarkable condition, with only minor cover wear, some small spots of soiling and creasing, and a little tanning that prevents it from grading even higher. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $500. From the McLaughlin Collection.
