FOR FANS OF POCKET COMICS, HARVEY HEROES, LARGER ART -- AND BOOKSHELF CONFORMITY - AN 8 1/2" X 11" VERSION OF POCKET COMICS DIGEST

The Complete Pocket Comics - Gwandanaland Comics #2178 --- Over 400 Pages of the Ground-Breaking Digest in a Full-Sized Version

404 Pages

It was a grand experiment – a pocket-sized comic with 100 pages of comic action for the same price that readers otherwise could only get 68 pages! On top of that, it contained great characters – THE BLACK CAT, SPIRIT OF '76, PHANTOM SPHINX, RED BLAZER....and many others, including SATAN himself! Alas, the series only lasted 4 issues; perhaps, as legend states, it was too easy for comics to disappear in pockets without being paid for, or possibly it was simply ahead of its time, because a couple decades later the digest-sized comic would be a staple of Harvey Comics as well as others. Gwandanaland Comics has a digest-sized version (Gwandanaland Comics #1210), but for those readers who want all their books the same size, and who enjoy the art in a larger size, this is the book for you!
