This is a particularly strange issue to be connected to Chesler, despite the Chesler Syndicate mark on the cover. It consists of reprints of Silver Streak issues published by Your Guide Publications, Inc. or Lev Gleason's Comic House, Inc. Of the reprinted issues, the earliest are believed to have been produced by Funnies, Inc. while the later issues seem likely to have been produced by the Binder studio (which admittedly featured many Chesler alumni, including studio head Jack Binder) or by freelancers or in-house staff. None of this material appears to be the direct product of the Chesler shop, although it is difficult to make such statements with confidence.
