Same scan as before, except for improved fc and added bc (from HAG). Also, some pages re-named to put them in alphabetical order.
Fc, bc + 60 pages; no text story or ads; also one page -#35 - has a large chunk cut out.

It had the shortest life (8 issues) of Fox's 5 anthology comics. It was then merged with Weird Comics (as of Weird #8). Dynamo lasted until #19; Eagle & Marga stayed until the last Weird (#20).

Comment: A Really Terrific Comic Book!! If anyone out there has it, PLEASE upload a copy of "Science Comics # 1" by Fox Feature Syndicate. I would really love to see the stories in that. Don't confuse this with "Science Comics # 1" by Ace, as this is NOT the correct comic and isn't related to the Fox "Science Comics" series in any way. Thanks Very Much!
