So, the Dell Comics here are PD?

Those on DCM, as far as we can tell, are PD

"Copyrighted" or "Entire contents copyrighted"

Are showing up in a few issues I'm looking at online.  Anyone weigh in if this counts as proper attribution?

It's neither the symbol, the word "Copyright" or a short form I'm familiar with.

John C:
Up until a certain point, the only acceptable phrasings are copyright and the circled-c (it's in one of the circulars on the Copyright Office's main page, I believe), so anything else would be invalid.

That's not to say, however, that copying it definitely won't result in any  lawsuits.  I think the story goes that the first US printing of The Lord of the Rings violated a significant copyright policy, but the courts basically ruled that the details don't always matter.  If it was something like "entire contents copyright..." I doubt any clerk or court would consider that wrong.
