    Super Comics #1-48 Bound Volumes (Dell, 1938-42). There's a whole lot of comic history wrapped up within these four bound volumes. Super Comics was one of Dell's earliest series, specializing in reprinted newspaper strips like Dick Tracy, Smokey Stover, Little Orphan Annie, and others. In time, original features like "Magic Morro" were added. Each volume contains twelve 64-page issues, making each book quite a hefty tome. All comics were Western Publishing file copies that were bound and trimmed for office use. Due to the advanced age of these books, a few problems need to be noted: Vol. 1 has had the entire block of comics separate from the binding, which has split in two, leaving the back cover loose. The back cover of issue #12 was neatly pulled loose from the rest of the comic, and is joined to this back piece; also, a wear spot has developed on the spine cover. Vol. 2 is fully intact, but beginning to split along the seams, and the cover shows some wear. Volumes three and four are a little ragged at the top spine area, but not bad. All comics are in nice condition, with no major problems. Approximate Overstreet value for group = $1000.
