    How To Make Money By Writing for Comics Magazines by Robert Kanigher (Cambridge House, 1943) Condition: GD/VG. In 1943 Robert Kanigher wrote How to Make Money Writing, which included a section on comics, making it the earliest work on the topic -- four years earlier than Stan Lee's tome, Secrets Behind the Comics. Although this copy has has a coffee-ring stained cover, this superb comics-related book is quite scarce in any condition -- this is only the second copy we have offered to date, and the other copy closed at over $775, Still, compared to Golden Age comics from the same era, this important work of comics history/memorabilia is sure to be a bargain. Contents include a Captain Marvel sample script and a 14-page Steel Sterling comic story sample with art by Irv Novick. 92 pages.
