Animal Fun 3-D
« on: August 10, 2015, 11:28:28 AM »
So, would this book be allowed?

http://www.comics.org/issue/173781/

It's from Premier Magazines, a very small publisher where we have every other book they did on the site:

The catch is, the Animal Fun issue features Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal, who are normally Marvel/ Timely characters.  Does anybody have the slightest idea of the history of this book?  It's not a simple bootleg like the IW/ Super books, given that the story is in 3-D.

In either case, the book is on the way to me, I just want to know if we can not use it, use it in part, or use it in full.

Hi Eric.
Check the indicia when it arrives and we can go from there.

Sounds like a plan, Yoc.  It just amuses me that we're down to needing one book, not for a series, but for an entire publisher.  We're making progress!

Sure.  Now say that about a bigger publisher like Fiction House and I'd Really be impressed!

We're definitely getting close on some of the larger publishers.  Fiction House and Novelty are both getting impressively close.

Not that I have anything to contribute on Fiction House beyond the handful I've already done; I think I have more issues of Planet Stories (the pulp) than Fiction house comics from all titles.

The indicia reads:

Awaiting the expert verdict.

There's an ad for the Animal Fun issue in "Nuts!" #1, otherwise I might wonder if was even the same Premier Magazines that published the 3-D issue.  The issue also has "Billy and Buggy Bear", who appeared in Timely books in 1943-1946... and Charlton books in 1947.  This is just an odd book at best, it seems; it seems to be all (or almost all) Marvel/ Timely inventory.  But the Charlton appearance suggests it's not impossible Marvel let the material go; Charlton's rep is more for grabbing stuff others don't want cheap rather than actual theft.  This may be a rare case where I scan the book to share it elsewhere; I suspect it's legitimately in the PD even if we have valid reasons to not post it here.
