FREELANCE #33, Aug-Sept 1946, 10 Cents, Anglo-American (labelled as Double A Comics), 52 Pages

Comment: My first "can" but I'd like to shout out to Yoc for doing the actual upload and tips on scanning. Three terrific Freelance stories by Ted & Ed. I'd like to read more of this character and more Canadian GA in general. Glad I could share something on the DCM! Enjoy!
