    Description

    Famous Funnies: A Carnival of Comics #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC FN 6.0 Cream to off-white pages. Collectors had long suspected that these early Famous Funnies were not only in-store giveaways but also used as mail-away premiums. Yet this wasn't confirmed until 1995, when Mark Wilson's article in Comic Book Marketplace pictured a copy. And of course, this comic is nothing less than the second comic book ever published. M. C. Gaines, the "father of the comic book," marketed it to various retailers to use as a promotional giveaway for their customers. The content consists of reprints of popular strips. CGC notes, "From the collection of Jon Berk." Overstreet 2018 FN 6.0 value = $1,623. CGC census 11/18: 4 in 6.0, 14 higher.
