The only story from what is upload is a very blurry Clock story that I couldn't read, so when I found out that the Clock story was reprinted in Keen Detective Funnies and there was more reprinted material, I put this together. It is reprints only, good for a place holder. The list of included reprinted material: Alias the Clock Keen Detective Funnies (Centaur, 1938 series) #v1#8 The Border War Amazing Mystery Funnies (Centaur, 1938 series) #v1#1 Mountain Murder Funny Picture Stories (Centaur, 1938 series) #v3#1 Wild Horse Funny Pages (Centaur, 1938 series) #v2#12 The Case of the Broken Skull Keen Detective Funnies (Centaur, 1938 series) #v1#8 The Sacred White Elephant Amazing Mystery Funnies (Centaur, 1938 series) #v1#2 Front cover and back cover from Heritage Auctions. It can be reuploaded when more material is available.
NOTE - this scan is made from reprints. We STILL WOULD LOVE TO SEE AN ORIGINAL BOOK SCANNED!
?If?? anyone owns this comic PLEASE consider scanning it for the site or letting a trusted scanner do the work for you.
