Lets See Your Oldest Comic19583

I blame the forum gremlins. figment private msg quote post Address this user
A few years ago my older son had a brief fascination with the 1930's so I thought it would be interesting to see everyone's oldest comic.

It's not a contest or competition, there's no judgement, and please... NO WAGERING!

Here's ours from September 1934, presenting Famous Funnies #2...

I haven't aired it out. It's part of the provenance. Galen130 private msg quote post Address this user
I'm aware that this is for your oldest comic (singular), but these two are from the same year...the oldest comics I have.

I think I have a few from the 30's, but I don't remember where they are, so this is the oldest I have handy:

Some will count this as a comic, some not. It is a lot like the Prince Valiant comic strip. 1886.

I gave my copy away for free to a collector at my lcs last week because the previous week I showed him a foreign edition of that copy. So gave him the English language one 👍

Every time I get this out to prep it to send in for probably less than 2.0, the smell of it disturbs me and I pack it back up.
