THE COMIC WEEKLY was included with the Sunday edition of the DETROIT NEWS . The Comic Weekly had between 16 and 20 pages on average each week depending on the number of ads and comics in each section. The Comics had the same dimensions as the newspaper itself measuring 21 1/4âe x 15 1/2âe. They are between 2 1/2âe - 3âe.
This is a bound volume of the entire 1939 year of comics. Since this was a weekly, t must be well over 900 pages.
Heavy paper covers were used to protect the bound volume.
CONDITION: For the most part this volume is in very nice condition. The front cover is attached but the back one is missing. Because the back one is missing, the final issue dated Dec. 31, it is partially loose with edges being a little ragged and some small tears. The last page is completely loose and it has many tears with more raggedy edges. Other than that, t is minor wear showing. They were bound with a heavy string at 11 or 12 positions. This volume has a little more looseness than some of the other volumes - but the volume is still held together nicely.
The Included comics are: RED RYDER JANE ARDEN THE TIMID SOUL MR. AND MRS. BUNGLE FAMILY TOONERVILLE FOLKS CHARLIE CHAN MICKEY FINN REGâe(tm)LAR FELLERS GIRLS OUT OUR WAY THE COMIC ZOO OFF THE RECORD TAILSPIN TOMMY BEN WEBSTER... read more
