    Description

    Funnies on Parade #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC Apparent VF+ 8.5 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. This is the first comic book ever published, and the print run was a mere 10,000! It was a giveaway book, produced for Procter and Gamble, and was sent for free to customers who clipped coupons from the company's products -- charging a dime for this new form of entertainment wouldn't come until later. Ernst Gerber gave this book a scarcity rating of "8" in his Photo-Journal. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $1,000; VG 4.0 value = $2,000; FN 6.0 value = $3,000; VF 8.0 value = $6,000.
