    Funnies On Parade #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC Apparent VG/FN 5.0 Slightly brittle pages. This is the first comic book, how can you get any more important than that? Gerber gives this a scarcity rating of "8," and we had only seen this issue on one previous occasion. To be precise, this is the first comic book in the modern format, and it was a giveaway book, produced for Procter and Gamble with a print run of 10,000. It was sent for free to customers who clipped coupons from the company's products -- charging a dime for this new item would come later! The contents were all reprinted Sunday funnies. When you compare the significance to the Guide values, this would have to be considered one of the biggest bargains in all of comic collecting. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, interior lightened, reinforced." Overstreet 2006 GD 2.0 value = $1,160; VG 4.0 value = $2,320; FN 6.0 value = $3,480.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
