    Description

    Bob Scully, The Two-Fisted Hick Detective #nn (Humor Publishing Corp., 1933) Condition: FN+. Along with Detective Dan and Adventures of Ace King (both offered in this same auction), this is a comic that puts conventional wisdom to the lie! After all, 1933 is noted in comic history as the year of Famous Funnies and related giveaway reprint comics, yet this little-known publication was more in the spirit of Detective Comics and other, later titles. It had a single theme, and notably, had a 10-cent cover price. We don't recognize the character Bob Scully or the artist Howard Dell, nor have we ever seen another copy. It's got 36 pages including covers. The interior is black and white. This issue has no publisher or date noted inside. The inside covers are blank. Of the three 1933 books offered here, this one's in the best condition by far! Overstreet 2008 FN 6.0 value = $1,125; VF 8.0 value = $3,000.
