I've pulled this down gang.
I don't believe we should be hosting original art only in files.  It just feels wrong in my bones.
Until the staff decides otherwise I think we should avoid this in the future.

I've already talked with Len here off list about this.  Thanks for your understanding.

Back to he never-ending Jungle upgrades:
tonight: Jungle #38!

I chose this one 'cause it was my earliest upload still in the section (and maybe in all of dcm/gac)... 4 weeks short of 5 years old  (have I been doing this that long???!!!). Also, it was missing the ifc/ibc/bc, so those are copied from Jumbo 48, but, of course, the indicia are removed.
(pls remove the oldie; thx!)

freddyf, Yoc, and others --

Do you know for sure that the ifc ibc and bc are the same (apart from indicia)? Have we seen these on fiche or via mirror-reading of HAG covers or something?

I really don't think we should be adding pages that are educated guesses.  I have no problem with adding pages from other scans to replace torn/remaindered/fiche page scans. And I have done a lot of that myself.

I'm following in the footsteps of others who've been copying ad pages from other issues, and who've shown that issues of Jungle have the same ads as Jumbos+10 [Jungle38=Jumbo48, etc].
However, I do some checking each time near the issue I'm upping, so this time I checked available issues between 37&40/47&50, and indeed all ads are the same.

Of course, this isn't 100% proof (delicious!), but I believe it's close enough.

The pattern was established by Carl who did a lot of research on it.  I'm willing to go with the adjusted ifc being added.
If a real one shows up I hope people will send us a scan to add as an Upgrade for the book.

Can we label these pages a "____.probable.jpg" just in case someone has a real copy and notes a difference just to avoid any confusion. Actually with my own I have labeled them "guess", but I think that is a bit too unsure. Most of my upgrades like that though I've confirmed 100% by getting a Heritage scan and reading the show-through. (Snard and I used to spend evenings trying to see who cold find the the "ten points of similarity" needed to confirm a fingerprint identity. Ahh the good old days.)

I'll do it if all agree.

Meanwhile, note to Geo: FamFuns is only about 3/4 done, although about of the missing issues (~25) are in the first 43 issues

New this Thurs Feb 13th a.m.: Durango Kid 13!; one more to go!
(by the way, the 2 current partial #13s could/should be combined into one download)

Hi Jon,
That sounds like a great idea to me.  As Len is the person most likely to use these I think we can all agree on it.

One thing I didn't think of: I do add notes like 'fromJumbo48' to each copied pagescan, so is 'probable' really needed, or do you prefer 'probable' alone?
