    Juke Box Comics #1-6 Group - File Copies (Famous Funnies, 1948-49). How'd you like to own file copies of a title's entire run? That's what we're offering here, and what an unusual title this is, filled with biographical stories of singers and bandleaders. Covers feature Dinah Shore, Jimmy Durante, and Desi Arnaz, and it's worth noting that Alex Toth drew the cover of the first issue. Overstreet calls attention to a "transvestitism story" in #2; it's in the life story of bandleader Elliot Lawrence, and no, Mr. Lawrence himself does not participate in the cross-dressing! The breakdown of grade is as follows: #1 NM- (with an overhang), #2 NM+, #3 VF/NM, #4 FN/VF ,#5 VF/NM, and #6 VF. Approximate Overstreet value for group = $1,250.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
