Thanks for pointing these out Narf.  No, they aren't in the PD - people no Mighty Mouse or Heckle & Jeckle please.

The important thing to remember is that copyrights are independent of publisher and title.  They're on an issue to issue basis and issued (and renewed) by year.  So if someone needs one of us to check, be absolutely sure to get the title right and the year of publication.

How about these features from non-PD titles:
from United Features' Tip Top: Mirror Man; Triple Terror; Iron Vic?
from King Comics: Jimmy Thompson's Redmen?

None of these look like strip reprints.

I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere, but what's the status of Classics Illustrated comics? I see none at DCM, so I assume they are a no-no, but I couldn't find Gilberton on the list of prohibited publishers.

I believe they were renewed and that's why there not here Poztron.

Ah well. I did have a CI David Copperfield with art by Kiefer, but I'll save myself the bother of pointlessly scanning it.
I did seem to recall reading somewhere that some of the CI's were being reprinted.

All CI are already scanned. Most have been reprinted.

Little Orphan Annie is added the list on characters not safe for DCM.
Any uploads with her in them will be removed - if you want to share it remove her pages first.
Thanks,

Pretty much any King Features that you have heard of, and some you have not, have been renewed.

I can not find a copyright renewal on this. Is there a reason I never scanned and uploaded my copy of #1?
