Famous Funnies 004 (no BR)
coverless copy scanned and edited by KaineZ

---
Famous Funnies #1 is the book that started it all for the American comic book collecting aficionado and here is issue #4!

Comparing notes with Overstreet it appears that many of the strips from the first issue are found here in issue #4, but a lot of these didn't have the longevity in Famous Funnies as later strips like Oaky Doakes, Scorchy Smith and Dickie Dare which is a little surprising because Joe Palooka especially was a long running strip. According to wikipedia it was one of the top 5 strips in America in 1948. I know that Oaky Doaks, while popular, achieved no where near the same fame yet it rare for many years in Famous Funnies.

The only way I could afford this issue was because it was coverless! Front and back cover in the archive are from Heritage.

The following strips are in this issue:

Joe Palooka
Hairbreadth Harry
Connie
Lolly Geography / Highlights of History
Magic Made Easy
Buck Rogers (removed)
Somebody's Stenog
Strange as it Seems
Napoleon (was that dog popular or what???)
Dip and Duck
Ben Webster's Page
Dixie Dugan
Slim and Tubby
Nipper
S'matter Pop?
The Nebbs
The Bungle Family
Vignettes of Life
Honeybunch's Hubby
Jane Arden
Buttons and Fatty
Simp O'Dill
Ned Brant at Carter
Keeping Up with the Joneses
