@martymann It's both ridiculous and adorable! It's nice to think of a time when comic books were written for such an innocent and impressionable demographic.

This was the time of year that you would find a terrific
selection of brand new, fresh copies of DELL/FOUR COLOR
COMICS filling the racks in the toy department of W.T. GRANTS.
So many to choose from and so little money to spend...

THE SPIRIT #21...June 1950...this cover might have been a little
too risque for the time...maybe why it turned up as a remainder.

A copy of TERRY-TOONS #38, graded 4.0 just sold for $931.00
on the recent ComicConnect auction. This book was part of
the SHIRLEY'S MARKET COLLECTION. I wonder what my 6.0 NON-
PEDIGREED copy would sell for?

For no special reason this has always been one of the favorites
in my collection. It has the large ALL-AMERICAN PUBLICATION
AA logo, black cover and it's a "N" copy. Plus CICERO'S CAT is
wearing a leather football helmet.

I cannot think of another like situation where this was the outcome. Usually, one or both would cease publishing the disputed intellectual property. Maybe the whole lawsuit was just too big of a Katzenjammer for the 2 publishers and they decided to play nice. Of course, neither head of the respective publishing empires were known for their nice traits so that is another hmmm.

See, this is what I mean. The ruling makes no sense to me. Its like Disney creates Mickey Mouse, leaves Disney for WB and creates an identical character, let's say, oh, Mortimer Mouse, and everybody is just fine with it. Don't work today I tell ya!

@Badger - National/DC sued a few publishers who had superheroes too much like Superman for copyright infringement. The most notable one was Fawcett Comics for Captain Marvel. Ironically, when DC came out with their own Captain Marvel comic in the 1970's, they couldn't call it Captain Marvel, because Marvel was already using that title and had to call their comic SHAZAM. Ain't life funny?

This book has always been a mystery to me as I know I didn't
buy it but I do believe it came from my friend Joey Barrone
who lived across the hall. We would exchange comics to read
and then return them after awhile. Joey had a sister and I
always thought it might have been hers that got mixed into
mine. We moved away before I discovered I had it so I could
never check to see if that was what happened.
