You are talking about Charlton. They published their comics on a printing press made for printing cereal boxes. They bought their own printing presses in the 1950's and kept using them up until the early 80's. I am quite sure those are NORMAL printing defects from Charlton.

Charlton was so bad that even in the 1950's when EC had them print Impact #1, William Gaines saw the poor quality & had the first printings recalled. Inconsistency is the only consistent thing about Charlton's quality. They couldn't even trim comics well. You'd get brand new comics with jagged edges.

@00slim dug out the #1 and found 2 #2s and a #6, funny I know every comic I have as long as it's a #1 or #nn Mentally I don't store other books that I have, but as soon as I saw the 2s and the #6 I was like oh yeah I have those to, lol.
Oh yea the #1 doesn't have that browning as pictured. Like said the pic I posted was terrible quality. Looks better.

@00slim the #1 looks nice but has enough smaller things to keep up from grading higher than maybe a 7.0 7.5. One of the #2's looks nice. I think a press and dry clean would put them a little higher. I won't be home tonight, in training for the next day out of town. But don't worry they are yours I won't let anyone else swoop in on them I don't roll like that, no matter the price

Thank you, @earthshaker01. I most definitely will & I'll keep my eyes open for any Golden Age oddities.

I have a Flintstonrs mini comic that was a shoe store giveaway. I thought it was Golden, but it's dated 1963.

I'm sure you will come across someone who is looking for something or you'll be able to help them out. Sometimes its good to help someone out even of we never met them before. Oh amd I found one of the 9.6s of underdog #1 @ heritage auctions for sale but it's 1100.00 eeeekkk. Too rich for me to buy lol
