    Description

    Famous Funnies: A Carnival of Comics #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) Condition: Coverless. The second comic book ever published. This comic never actually hit newsstands -- publisher M. C. Gaines, the "father of the comic book," marketed it to various retailers to use as a promotional giveaway for their customers. At that early date, nobody knew if people would actually pay ten cents for one of these staple-bound things! The content consists of reprints of popular strips of the day, with Mutt and Jeff, Reg'lar Fellers, Joe Palooka, and the like all appearing. Puzzles have been filled in pencil. Coverless, but otherwise complete. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $541.
