The Wanted List Banner Covers

Hi gang, here is a listing of all the covers in the latest version of our Wanted Comics List banner.
Fingers crossed they will eventually show up sometime on DCM.

#1 - The Adventures of Detective Ace King (Humor Publishing Co., 1933)
Copyright registered on October 16, 1933 this and two other Humor Pub. books predates Superman's debut by quite some time.  Humor's three books were the first devoted to a single theme, with a single character using all original art.

#2 - Bob Scully, The 2 Fisted Hick Detective (Humor Publishing Co., 1933)
In 1933 Siegel and Shuster, after years of failing to sell their Superman newspaper strip, had a deal with Humor Pub. to publish their Superman character as a comic fall through before it would end up with DC in 1938.  See the 'Detective Dan' scan (link below) for more on the Superman connection with Humor Pubs.

A third Humour Pub. book IS scanned and shared on DCM!  Click Here to see 'Detective Dan: Secret Operative 48'. At the end of that file is an introduction covering the Humor Publishing titles.

#3 - Superworld Comics #1 (Komos Pubs 1940.04)
Hugo Gernsback tried his hand at comics for a very short time.  We only need this first issue to complete the three issue run on DCM.

#4 - Wow, What A Magazine 01 (Henle, 1936.07)
This is where Eisner and Iger first met.  They along with a few future comics legends would eventually become the Eisner Iger shop a short time later.

#5 - Wow, What A Magazine 03 (Henle, 1936.09)
Four issues were made before they folded.  We have only one of these early key books scanned so far.

#6 - Wow, What A Magazine 04 (Henle, 1936.11)
