Smash Comics #05 [Dec'39]-68pg-c2c -Phabox scans

Comment: Decent scans of a brittle comic. More Black X -- this one doesn't look like Eisner art & the title character is misnamed the Black Ace. More Invisible Justice, Invisible Justice, etc. etc. Thanks again, Joe! Bob

Comment: Page order incorrect. The "Interesting People" page about Pete Biagi should come before the Invisible Justice story, not after. This can be seen by close inspection of the 8th and 9th panel on the last page of the Chip Chance story. This also solves the problem of two sequential right-hand pages (the 39th and 40th images are right-hand pages and the 45th and 46th images are left-hand pages). Apparently the people who indexed this book at GCD used this scan, so that will need to be corrected as well.
