Fawcett, April 1946, c2c, damaged front page -Henry Peters scans

Comment: Interesting that this April 1946 1st issue-- likely appearing on newsstands at the start of that year, in keeping with most publishers post-dating their comics to keep them on stands longer-- was originally to be titled NUTTY COMICS (as seen atop every interior page), when Fawcett's own NUTTY #1 is dated WINTER 1946, and was the only issue of that title released. An internal debate over what to title the publisher's attempt at a humor anthology book? Bad record-keeping? Given Fawcett's relatively conservative titling tendencies, they likely felt "Comic Comics" was safer than the implications inherent in "Nutty," and perhaps later saw in other companies' products that the slang implication of mental illness wasn't inherently a bad thing, too late to make a difference.
