The Best Comics wiki last edited by turoksonofstone on 05/31/13 12:21AM View full history

Published from November 1939 to February 1940 with 4 total issues numbered 1-4.

An early experiment in the size and shape of comic books, unlike the other comics, of which there were few at the time, this one took the size of 68 pages in the form of a panel comic from the news paper.

It was made up of mainly of humor strips, having only one adventure series The Red Mask, which featured the first black mystery man, who while shown as white on the covers was shown colored darker.

This comic also is the reason that DC's World's Best Comics had to be re-titled World's Finest Comics with the second issue, even though they had not published a Best Comics in over a year when WBC came DC thought it better not to fight them for it.
