    1939 A Good Year 0

    Patty O'Day These older comics are impressive.  68 pages without any adds to speak of.  It is like reading 4 or 5 comics today.  It seems like in these issues they would trough everything in these books and see what sticks.  There is every kind of story you can imagine.  The book has a magical hero, Sunday style comics, a new reporter adventure, a detective story, a western, a spy tale, a police drama and a military story.  There are also several one page things ranging from comic strips to bio...
