It bothered me when clowns became creepy and part of the horror genre. When I was young I enjoyed clowns. Red Skelton, Emmett Kelly and Bozo to name a few.

It appears that BACK COVERS are pretty much ignored except when
it comes time for grading. I found that in a lot of cases the
BACK COVER is also an entertaining part of the book.

I have the 1948 Edition of the DAISY HANDBOOK...but has anyone
ever seen a copy of Number One, the 1946 edition?

While adding COMICS ON PARADE images to Nostomania I realized that
this was a SPECIAL ISSUE with no number dated July 1946 and issued during the regular run.

Things have surely changed since this COMICS ON PARADE from 1948
was on the newsstand...

It's "KING COMICS" and they show an image of The LITTLE KING in
the logo...but he only gets a half page on the last page of the book.

A follow-up to the ACE COMIC above...except he's wearing real skates.

Running across all of these as I add scans of all my ACE COMICS, KING COMICS and TIP-TOP COMICS to Nostomania.

One of my oldest (September 1943) and one of my favorite Golden

If it wasn't for the newspaper comic strip reprint books I
would have missed some very funny episodes like this FEARLESS
FOSDICK in SPARKLER COMICS #58.

One of the two JUMBO COMICS I ever bought. As I've told before
the Barber Shop that I went to always had the new copies of JUNGLE,
JUMBO, PLANET and WINGS COMICS to read while waiting...and kids
always had to wait.

It's surprising to me that's there's any interest in this comic...
but I'm glad I have it.
