    Buster Brown & His Resolutions (Frederick A. Stokes Co., 1903) Condition: GD. Let's have a round of applause for the first nationally distributed comic book! And a "book" it is, measuring 16 x 11 1/4 inches. R. F. Outcault's Buster Brown was the first nationally licensed comic strip character in America, and this comic was distributed nationally by Sears Roebuck. Overstreet designates it as "rare." While this copy has tears up to five inches on interior pages as well as some minor staining, it has maintained its structural integrity and only the smallest of pieces are missing -- quite impressive shape for a comic that's over 100 years old! Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $1,500.
