    Famous Comics Set (King Features Syndicate, 1934). These odd-sized 100-page books contained early daily comic strip reprints. The books show up on occasion, but the whole set, in the box, is a rarity and a treat. Book #1 contains the Katzenjammer Kids, Barney Google, and Little Jimmy. Book #2 features Polly and Her Pals, Little Jimmy, and the Katzenjammer Kids. Last of all, #3 contains Little Annie Rooney, the Katzenjammer Kids, and Polly and Her Pals. There is varying degrees of neat coloring in each of these books. If not for the coloring, issue #1 would grade a nice VG+, # 2 would rate a very clean FN+, and #3 GD+ due to mouse chews on the upper left and right corners. The fully illustrated "slip case" is still solid and tight and works out to be VG. Overstreet 2003 value for set = $240.
