As it says, all the ads in this case are copied from an issue of Jungle. This is what was decided by others to do and many other FHs (not just Jumbo/Jungle) have been upgraded this way. Carl verified that Jumbos and Jungles 10 numbers lower have the same ads. I always check a neighboring c2c issue or two to double-check. The ifc's of course also have the indicia which must be deleted or somehow erased. Whether it's worthwhile or not to copy incomplete ifc's I leave to others.

It's Sept in the Eastern time zone! Back-to-school month!
So, let's turn the spotlight on...
Harvey Comics!
It's All-New #9, with Blonde Bomber and Black Cat! (and an early Joe Kubert story)

A bit more for FH fans:
Fight 22 now has 6 of the 8 damaged pages replaced by complete scans from the LOC;
Jumbo 46 is now c2c! thx to 3 pages from LOC & a bc from HAG (& edits by yoc!) (also screenshots added, and story-ID added to filenames)

A Fox upgrade tonight thx to yoc&LOC: Green Mask v2n5 (#16) is now c2c... ad&texts from loc & a much better fc from hag.

Warning: Rant ahead!
A while back, because I had announced it was on the way, I went on about an issue of Wonderworld I bought at eBay that turned out to be missing pages and also was the wrong issue!

Continuing that theme (maybe I should start a new thread? Purchases From Hell?): These were all via eBay and all described as complete:
Last week I received a non-PD from a major dealer (DTA)... 2 centerfolds missing, and it again was a comic with numbered pages!
Today, 2 packages: one non-PD missing 2 cfs!
and a FamousFunnies #31 with 3 pages torn out of different parts of the comic (there was a 2nd FF in the order -#37- that is ok).

To be fair, the vast majority of comics I've bought from eBay sellers have been ok, and I always get the refunds (thanks partly to eBay's buyer-protection policies), but as I said before, what a waste of time in messaging back&forth and often mailing stuff back, and I'm still looking for complete issues.
(And it's not only at eBay... I've received incomplete comics from Metropolis, comicconnect & LoneStar, and others I can't remember.)

End of rant! Happy Labo(u)r Day to all!

Ouch, very sorry about the recent pages Len.
I'm some would say this is a perfect reason for CGG coffins existing.

Wonder if anybody wonders if their comics-in-the-coffin are Really complete.
Back to reality... it's Famous Funnies 104! with the same Flint pages as before, no Buck, and also missing pages 31-2 (last ISO page & Penpal page).

I can imagine most of these guys don't take the time to count the pages.  I've gotten incomplete books from eBay (which was Lonestar) and ComicConnect.  Both times I offered to trade for something of equal value, but they keep wanting the book back for refund and then start over.  Of course I scan them before I return them....

Tonight, a Fiction House GM-replacement: Jungle 14!
Comic was coverless and minus the cf, and HAG has no bc, so the ifc/ibc/bc and cf are still GMs.
