    Weekly Comic Magazine 1st version (Fox, 1940) Condition: VF. This was Fox's answer to the Spirit Sections, though we'll note that it's actually dated a few weeks earlier than the first Spirit insert! It's on newsprint, intended to be folded (which this copy is) as well as cut (which this copy isn't). While it says "Trenton Sunday Times May 12,1940" at the top, we assume that this was printed as a speculative endeavor by Fox and that the section was never actually distributed. It's got 8 pages of the Blue Beetle and 7 pages of Patty O'Day (who was a backup feature in Wonder Comics). The pages of this copy are very nice and supple considering the type of paper and its age. Overstreet notes, "two copies known to exist." Overstreet lists only a NM- value, noting "Estimated value $625." From the John McLaughlin Collection.
