    Description

    Bobby Gets Hep #nn Mile High pedigree (Bell Telephone System, 1946) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. Here's one of the more unusual comics to come from the Edgar Church collection, a promotional eight-pager designed to make youngsters aware of problems that can arise from tying up party-line telephones. In this age of wireless phones, it may be hard to imagine a time when people had to share telephone lines, but back in 1946, especially in small towns and rural areas, this was the norm. We're not sure of the artist, but the story is well-drawn. Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census 9/11: 2 in 9.0, none higher.
