Comment: This issue shows Asians attacking Pearl Harbor and was on the stands one month before the actual event. A historic issue showing how deeply the war sentiment was building prior to the actual attack. The scans are decent except for the silly "Copyright GM" in the lower corners. Public domain material cannot be copyrighted unless you make a derivative work, and then only the derivative portion is copyrighted, the underlying document is still public domain.

Synopsis: The Axis Powers spread a wide net of mayhem, attacking Pearl Harbor (by the Germans yet!), Guam and Portland, Maine.
