Comment: Wonderful scans of some very scarce, and often beautiful, material. Star Comics was rather amazing for its time and place. I'd rate this even higher were there not a single page missing.
 
 

Issue: #9
Published: January 1938, Price: 0.10 USD, Pages: 68, Editing: Harry "A" Chesler (Editor, credited); George Nagle (Managing Editor, credited)
Color: Color Dimensions: Standard Golden Age US Paper Stock: Glossy Cover; Newsprint Interior Binding: Saddle-stitched Publishing Format: Was Ongoing Series
Notes: Statement of Ownership, Management, Circulation, Etc. on credits/table of contents page. Index updated from a DCM scan missing pages 31-34 and 61-62. There is considerable confusion surrounding this issue and the previous issue (Star Comics #8) in older sources. The original indexes were taken from Howard Keltner's guide, which appears to have swapped the contents of #8 and #9 (with a few inconsistencies). Even though the DCM scan is incomplete, the table of contents page is unquestionably that of #9, as it includes the indicia as well, and makes it clear that the Keltner listing for #8 come from the contents page of #9.
