    Description

    Famous Funnies: A Carnival of Comics #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white pages. 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 of the day. Gerber's Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books lists this as "rare", with only 11 to 20 copies estimated to exist. A very historically significant comic book. CGC notes, "Small piece out of page 7 & 16, slightly affects art." Overstreet 2016 VG 4.0 value = $1,028; FN 6.0 value = $1,542. CGC census 5/17: 6 in 5.0, 24 higher.
