Comment: This site is simply amazing! I found a potential mistake with this scan. Based on all the other Vital Publications comics, it appears as if the ifc and ibc are swapped. Anyone have the comic to verify against?

Issue: #[1]
Published: 1943, Price: 0.10 USD, Pages: 60, Editing:
Color: Color Dimensions: Standard Golden Age US Paper Stock: Glossy Cover; Newsprint Interior Binding: Saddle-stitched Publishing Format: Was On-going Series
Notes: The on-sale date is the publication date reported in the U. S. Copyright Office filing. The publication title filed with the U. S. Copyright Office is "Plastic man in the Game of death!" No issue number is included in the filing. The indicia text: "This book has been manufactured under wartime conditions in full compliance with all orders and regulations of the War Production Board, in particular 1. 245 By VITAL PUBLICATIONS, Inc. New York from material prepared and supplied by COMIC MAGAZINES Copyright 1943, Vital Publications, Inc., New York All Rights Reserved The indicia scan confirms that there is no volume, issue number, or frequency present. Judging from the cover, copyright registration, and the indicia text, it appears this book was originally intended as a stand-alone publication and not part of a series. The Copyright Office treated it as such; the filing is listed in the Pamphlets volume and not the Periodicals one, which is how the Office treats stand-alone. There doesn't appear to have been a copyright filing for the second issue (from 1944), but the cover and indicia point to that being published as a stand-alone as well. This doesn't seem to have become a proper periodical series until the third issue in 1946. Police Comics (Quality Comics, 1941 Series) #27 (February 1944) is copyright 1943, and per the Copyright Office, its publication [on-sale] date was December 15, 1943, before this comics' Copyright Office's publication [on-sale] date of December 29, 1943. Police Comics (Quality Comics, 1941 Series) #28 (March 1944) is copyright 1944, and its Copyright Office's publication [on-sale] date is January 14, 1944. Thus, it is probable that this issue appeared on the newsstands at the same time Quality Comics titles with a February cover date in between Police Comics #27 and #28.
