Comics Magazine 01 [May'36][paper]-incomplete-missing CF
The very first Centaur comics ever published -- from May 1936. This book is unusual in that the stories are randomly either in color or black and white. This book also contains some of the earliest work by Sheldon Mayer and Walt Kelly!

Comment: the scans are good (brightness, sharpness), but the book is in bad shape. Still good reading, though!

Comment: I have just inspected the Old Wayne fiche scanned by Jormungand and this is NOT it. As mentioned in the previous post, this scan is paper with Black and White photocopy for the Black and White pages (thus the page color does not show). This scan is missing the centerfold and therefore has only 64 pages. The Jormungand scan is complete, but this makes a nice compliment to it as some areas are clearer. In conclusion: this is a 64 page paper scan and not the 68 page Jormungand fiche scan.

Comment: Of course, in addition to the Walt Kelly and Sheldon Mayer, this book has work by Siegel and Shuster.
