Front cover + all 4 main stories (Catman, Hood, Blackout, Deacon). With the page count reduced from 56 to 48, Ragman and Little Leaders are dropped in this issue).
Note: the cf (with the last 2 pages of Blackout) was missing from the scanned comic.
Also missing are the odd stories and all junk pages.
A bhcomics scan!
dhfh notes -
The "Firebird" feature in Tailspin #1 is actually a retitled, recolored, and slightly retouched (specifically the splash page) reprint of the Blackout story from Cat-Man Comics #24 ("The Valkyrie" story). The text looks like it's exactly the same in both stories, except that the name "Blackout" has been replaced with "Firebird" everywhere--and this is especially great since in the site's current, incomplete copy of Cat-Man #24, the Blackout story is missing the last 2 pages. So it looks like with this "Firebird story" we should be able to find out how it ends anyway!

Volume: #3, Issue: #13 [24]
Published: May 1944, Price: 0.10 USD, Pages: 52, Editing: R. R. Hermann (Managing Editor); F. Z. Temerson (Business Manager)
Color: Color Dimensions: Standard Golden Age U. S. Paper Stock: Glossy Cover; Newsprint Interior Binding: Saddle-stitched Publishing Format: Was Ongoing Series
Notes: While this volume/number change appears nonsensical at first glance, note that Captain Aero Comics had just put out it's v3#12 the month before. See this series' v2#6 (19) for another point where these two series' numbers seem to switch. Captain Aero puts out its own v3#13 the next month, and for both series it is the final Et-Es-Go issue before that company is replaced with Continental. Indicia frequency unknown. The Continental issues are bi-monthly but the immediately prior Et-Es-Go issue was monthly despite at least a month gap to either side of it. Likely monthly, but not at all certain.
