CAPTAIN TRIUMPH is to me one of the truly unusual SuperHeroes.

This early 1944 PLASTIC MAN, NN(#2) is one of many in my collection
that I bought at a newsroom that marked the cover with a N or E for
some reason. I only noticed it a few years back when I read about
the date markings made by distributors and/or sellers.
This issue also contains a message inside the back cover about wartime conditions and the Wartime Production Board.

Looking at this cover of TREASURE COMICS made me realize there
could be an entire thread devoted to "CAPES" worn by both Heroes
and Villains.

This one looks like the wrong character is wearing the cape.

STOOGE VILLER was one of the main villains in the DICK TRACY
cartoon series.

While not a true Comic Book these types of books appeared on the
newsstand and in Five & Dime Stores around this time of year.

While going through my box of Remainder Comics (about 50+ books)
I realized that there are a few key books in the group. In the
early 50's when I bought them I was buying comics for the stories
inside the cover and was able to get two books for the price of one.
Even with a missing third of the cover they have held up pretty good
over the years.

Even though my boxes of comics received the best of care over the
years of moving about...one box fell victim to water damage and of
course it contained some valuable issues.

While going through my newer BATMAN and DETECTIVE COMICS for another
thread, I'm taking a little time to revisit my early issues.

Glad to see you're now Googlized, Marty! Your collection should bring enjoyment to many comic book collectors.

As far as the children 'funny' comic books they are too cool. I recently opened a grab bag and was delighted to find a whole bunch of kids comic stuff. Nothing from the era you share but great characters like roadrunner, underdog, jetsons, gumby, etc. Lots of #1 issues. Also some coloring books and readers. Not too valuable but cool non the less. I'll post some pics later down the line when I get a chance.

@Savage_Spawn Some of these early "Paint Books" or "Books To Color"
contained "...illustrations ...originated on the drawing boards of
staff artists and animators at the WALT DISNEY STUDIOS during the
1930's.".
The six pictured below are from the back of my one copy of The WALT
DISNEY PAINT BOOK (bottom right) from the 1937 reproduction of the
1930' original publication.
The pictures are truly classic DISNEY.

///Extremely nice!!!///

I like a large range of artistic styles. The clean linear look of those old Disney classics make the ink pop off the page.

Back in May 2012 I began a thread on the Chat Board across the street
listing SUPERBOY #1 and FLASH COMICS #104 as "THE TOP TWO IN MY
COLLECTION.". Since that time I have come to realize that it appears
SPIRIT #22 is really the most valuable title in my collection...and
maybe a favorite.

While looking for Christmas issues I ran across this one which
I had forgotten I even had.
