    Our Gang #13-60 Bound Volumes (Dell, 1944-49). One of the "forgotten treasures" of children's comics published in the 1940s was a series of stories based on the long-running MGM short subject, "Our Gang" (also known to many as the "Little Rascals"). The comic series kicked off not long before the films ended; however the comics carried on much as the films did, allowing characters to grow up, leave, and be replaced with younger stars. The Our Gang stories were unusual for the time in that most stories were continued over two or three issues. These were well-written adventure tales, beautifully illustrated by Walt Kelly in a more realistic style than most fans are accustomed to seeing. These four bound volumes, prepared as office reference material, offer the bulk of the run, beginning with issue #13, and ending with issue #60 (which was retitled Tom and Jerry, as the Gang's adventures were gradually shifted out in favor of MGM's popular cat and mouse team). The comics were bound new; and trimmed for binding. Two volumes have minor problems with the bindings, and most books display tanned pages, but overall still retain a fresh look. As an added bonus, a number of issues also feature "Barney Bear and Benny Burro" stories by Carl Barks, working in a rare non-Disney setting. Approximate Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $1,000.
