NOTABLE: Due to copyright restrictions the Buck Rogers features cannot be reprinted. The pages of the earliest issues have some staining and printing defects. One page of a Mutt & Jeff is damaged. This is a book that will need upgrading over time, but given the rarity of the title, and its historic significance it was important to publish this.
Everyone accepts that the comic book as it came to be known was created in stages – there were collections of strips in newspaper inserts, then stand alone publications, and finally in May 1934 (with a July 1934 cover date) FAMOUS FUNNIES became the first monthly comic book! They began by reprinting newspaper comics, but within a few years the newsstands would be full of original stories from dozens of publishers, and the Golden Age of Comics had begun! FAMOUS FUNNIES sold for over 20 years and over 200 issues, a fitting run for this pioneer of comic books. Gwandanaland Comics is offering the largest print collection of FAMOUS FUNNIES ever assembled, beginning with these early issues which include Mutt & Jeff, Joe Palooka, Dixie Dugan, The Nebbs, Hairbreadth Harry, Jane Arden, Reg'lar Fellas, and much, much more!
This is a trade paperback collecting Famous Funnies #1-4.
