This Treasure Chest comic was originally sourced from The Catholic University of America Archives, as was the current scan on the DCM site. I have cropped, cleaned up and, when possible, enhanced it using some or all of the following: XnView for Windows (great freeware program), MS Paint and Office 2010. When the Archive pages are of poor quality, which averages about 3-4 pages a comic, I have replaced with pages from my collection, providing I have a copy that will not be damaged due to scanning.
