    Comic Monthly #1 and 2 Group (Embee Dist. Co., 1922) Condition: Average VG-. This was the first monthly 10-cent comic book! Issue #1 (VG) features Polly & Her Pals, and #2 (GD/VG) features Mike & Ike by Rube Goldberg. The "Em" in publisher Embee is none other than George McManus, and both issues have ads for a "Bringing Up Father" game on the inside covers! The covers of both issues are attached firmly. Interior pages are slightly brittle. #1 has some pencil markings on the back cover; #2 has some pencil on the front cover. Overstreet notes "All issues are extremely hard to find these days," and we had never seen either of the first two issues before. Overstreet 2006 GD 2.0 value for group = $400; FN 6.0 value for group = $1,403.
