And two more going up:

Feature Presentations 5 (The Black Tarantula) no IFC IBC

Variety Comics NN (1950)
Contains coverless, rebound copies of:  Crimes by Women 12, My Love Memoirs 12, Jungle Lil 1, and Feature Presentation 5 (The Black Tarantula).  And a one page "Treasury of Pirate Lore" on the IFC you won't find in the other scans.

Whichever form you get the books in, enjoy!

And I'm in a holding patter on my last Fox Giant as I debate how much I want to lower the grade to scan it; I literally took apart the first two but this one is in slightly better shape.

So, instead, you get Sparkling Stars #12 from Holyoke.  Enjoy!

The Black Tarantula was a pretty horrific entry for a kids' comic.  Not really gory, but it'd give most forties horror movies a run for their money.

That one was an oddball; it looks like they were trying to go for a little bit of a Classics Illustrated vibe without actually using a classic or doing something that would bore people, just fool parents.  Who knows?

Onto the last few books from the Giants:  Famous Crimes 16 now ready for download, in its no IFC IBC glory!

After some debate, I decided to cut apart the spine on the giant to get the best possible scans.  When I put back in the whole book staples it will still hold together since the covers are still glued to the first and back book.

Three cheers for Eric.  I'm sure they'd die a thousand deaths on the CGC boards.
;)

Boy, that Famous Crimes looks as packed with word balloons and captions as a Charles Biro 'Crime Doesn't Pay' issue!

Oh, I have some- even lots- of books where I couldn't bring myself to do that.  But since the whole point on buying the three Fox Giants was "hey, they're (relatively) cheap and may have some good scanning material" why not?

I actually think I did very well on the mix of books, given that I didn't know what was in them before ordering.

And here's My Desire 4, no IFC IBC

This one has a fairly well known cover image, better known from its reuse on Charlton's True Life Secrets #23.  Amazingly, Fox actually has the classier of the two uses of the cover.

Two books going up:

My Secret Story #29, no IFC IBC

Almanac of Crime (1950), which contains four rebound books:
   Famous Crimes #16
   My Desire Intimate confessions #4
   Jungle Lil #1
   My Secret Story #29
which have also been posted individually, and a "Felony Files" page on the IFC you can only get here.

I did not actually rescan the Jungle Lil, instead using the scan I got when I did Variety Comics.

Overall, I think this was a fairly neat batch of books.  If I ever find more Fox Giants in the under $50 range I'll probably grab them, too!

Wonderful work on these books Eric!  And what luck on the contents not already being scanned.

And the Fawcett is running so it's time to stop Ficheing!

Captain Marvel Adventures 45 (Paper scans) now ready for download.  And as grateful as I always am for Fiche scans, I think this one really could use the upgrade.  Includes chapter 24 of the classic "Monster Society of Evil" serial.
