I don't really know why, but I was buying and reading CAPTAIN MARVEL
ADVENTURES a full year before I bought my first ACTION COMICS and a
year and a half before I bought a copy of SUPERMAN COMICS.

I know I've shown this many times before but every time I run
across it I remember how happy I was when it arrived in the mail.

1946 and paper was still scarce...needed "...to wrap the products
of peace.".

Thanks for asking...it stands for Original Owner, these are all
comics that I bought off the newsstand during the years of 1942
until 1954.

How did you keep your comics as a kid before bags and boards? It seems like most of your books are in great shape all things considered

Until 1954 the were kept stacked in a bookcase for easy reading.
After that they were packed away in cardboard boxes until early
1970 when I placed them in bags and years later added boards to
most of the bags. As a whole the books in my collection grade
anywhere from 1.8 to 7.5. Somewhere along the way one of the
boxes got wet and damaged some books which I note from time to
time.
Thank you for your interest.

After listening to JACK ARMSTRONG on the radio for so many years
I was truly thrilled to find this on the newsstand.

I remember finding this while traveling...it was in a rack of
mostly pulp magazines in a Greyhound Bus Station in Baltimore.
There was no specific rack for comics just pulps and a mixture
of weeklies.

I have always thought that the early TOMAHAWK stories were a continuation of stories from the EC (Educational Comic) series
"PICTURE STORIES FROM AMERICAN HISTORY"

.
