Thanks very much HP!  :)
I'm going to add that you used a digital camera to do this as well right?

Yes. I couldn't use my scanner with this one. So I used my Sony camera and pan zoomed as well as possible. Guess I forgot to strip the metadata.

Alrighty folks! Just in time for Memorial Day, I'm uploading a huge find and massive 52 page Blue Beetle #32 anti-Nazi issue comic!! (well 51 out of 52 pages). No internal back cover or ibc. This one was a big one and took a long time to scan and crop to get mostly respectable looking in my comics viewer. The staff can peruse,edit, or whatever they need to for approval. I just uploaded to the database. Cheers!

Thanks again HP!
I'm going to add a better fc and bc scan and see if I can do some cleaning on some of the pages.

Hi folks.
I've got some more paper fills for Blue Beetle. I've got the text story for Blue Beetle #51 and the last ad page. I guess it could be added into Yoc's old scan. Only page missing would be ibc.

Here's the ad. Maybe another fox comic scan has a better version?

According to GCD, there were 5 other Fox issues with a publication date of December 1947: Jo-Jo #9, Sunny #11, Zoot #11, All Great #13 and Phantom Lady #15. We have scans for all of those except the All Great, and all of them have the same last page, ibc and bc.  I think it would be a safe bet that Blue Beetle #51 has the same ibc as the rest of these books. If that is not convincing enough, I just did a quick "mirror read" of one of the back cover scans on Heritage's site, and I can see portions of the Miller and Company ad from the ibc.

So, if someone wants to create a composite scan with the current BB #51 scan, hufflepuffle's two text pages, and the best versions of the Jowett Institute and Miller and Company ads from the books I listed, we will have a complete scan of that book. I would suggest Sunny #11.

Thanks A Nonny Moose! I just did that and now I'll see if I can upload to the database as update c2c version!

Nice! Everett, Burgos, Wolverton, Mills, and other pioneers!  IMO, the greatest part of Target Comics long run has just started.
