I should have said "If only I had a dollar to send in!"...it was very seldom
that I had a whole dollar.
Depending on what movie house I went to, the cost for ticket, candy and fountain drink
would have been between 22 cents and 35 cents.

Yep. When my dad was a young boy in rural Tennessee, school would let out for a period of time to harvest crops. One of them was cotton. He and my aunts, had to pick 200 lbs for .50 cents. He wasn't into comics from what I know, but he told me he could go to the movies (drive-in) didn't have indoor theaters there in those days, and get a candy bar and a fountain drink he called it, all for a quarter. No idea what he did with the other quarter.

You can't get that now for less than 20.00. Times have changed....

Back in August 2012 when I received my Graded copy of
STUNTMAN #1 (0194836001) back from CGC, that the label incorrectly
stated "Origin of STUNTMAN Retold".
I notified CGC about the error and they responded...
"In checking with our senior grader he says that it does appear
that the notation in Overstreet was mis-read and noted as retold
when it is the actual origin issue. We will fix that error of
course, at no charge. Would just need it mailed back in so we
can fix and change the label.
So far I haven't sent it back.
I see that it's been corrected on my certification page.
The Key Comment section lists"ORIGIN OF STUNTMAN".

@martymann Send it back. I have sent back books with incorrect labels and they paid for shipping both ways and had the books back to me within a few weeks, 3 I think it was.

Just in case you haven’t seen it, here is the unpublished cover to Stuntman 3!

There actually seems to be a few pages of original art from that issue that still exists. If you want I’ll print off all the pages I can track down, organize them like a comic and send it to you. At least this way you would have a physical copy of some of it and you’ve been waiting long enough! Compliments of this forum of course.

Apparently, in 1987, a company called Pure Imagination printed copies of the first two and a colorized version of number 3. For physical copies, all I've found are copies of #1. However, Amazon has a digital copy of #3 for Kindles. If you "look inside" it, the first page is a colorized copy of Stuntman #3. Perhaps you were aware of this before, but I thought I'd share this info just in case. Somewhere out there, there are colorized, physical copies of this book.

Thank you for the offer but I already have copies of the books content
courtesy of the reprints in GREEN HORNET COMICS numbers 37 and 39.
I truly appreciate your offer!

After two years of searching newsstands I had given up any hope
of finding any STUNTMAN COMICS. Imagine my surprise and delight
in discovering inside my newly acquired (May 1948) copy of GREEN
HORNET COMICS #39 a 12-page STUNTMAN story which I later discovered
to be the story from STUNTMAN #3.

Over the years during my ever ending search for a copy of STUNTMAN #3
I have become aware of another rare black and white comic issued by
HARVEY and mailed to subscribers, SIMON and KIRBYS "BOY EXPLORERS #2".
I don't remember seeing BOY EXPLORERS #1 on the newsstand in 1946 but
I did discover them in my copy of TERRY & THE PIRATES #3 which was
really issue number one.

@martymann Thanks for sharing. I don't think I have heard of Boy Explorers. But it had to be good if Kirby did the art. Looks like Gas-House, Smiley, Gadget & Mister Zero were have a blast...

The BOY EXPLORERS story that began in TERRY & THE PIRATES #3 is continued
in TERRY & THE PIRATES #4.

Have you seen this original art to Stuntman 5 apparently that was part of Joe Simons estate?

While reading the contents of BOY EXPLORERS #1 I saw that one of the
stories contained the SIMON & KIRBY character "THE DUKE OF BROADWAY"
which I remembered from STUNTMAN COMICS #2. It appears that this
SIMON & KERBY character was also featured in BOY EXPLORERS #1 and
BLACK CAT COMICS #'s 5-6-7. The DUKE OF BROADWAY story in BLACK CAT
#5 was the classic atom bomb story "MY CITY IS NO MORE".
A lot was going on at HARVEY during 1946 / 1947.

June 1947 was a good month on the newsstand as I picked up a copy of
SENSATION #68 which featured the first appearance of the original
HUNTRESS in the WILDCAT story. Also in this issue of SENSATION COMICS
there was a promotion page for FLASH COMICS #86 which featured what
might be the first appearance of the BLACK CANARY.

One of my favorite Flash comics! Had a nice copy "back in the day".
