From A To Z!


Getting twenty-five stories is a great deal, and not one you'd be able to find in today's market for a mere quarter by any means, but shouldn't there be twenty-six stories included. Just saying!

  1. how many pages was this issue? Even if each story was only 3 pages thats a 75 page comic before ads.

  2. If they sold a comic book with 26 stories for 25 cents, that would mean giving the reader each story for 96% of one penny. I can't see how any publisher could stay in business for long offering bargains like that!

  3. Of course, they could value each story at a penny, then throw in one extra story free as a loss leader. That would make the bookkeeping a lot simpler. Still, though...that's a lot of entertainment value for the money. Boy, comics publishing is a tough business!

  4. I couldn't find info on this particular issue, but the one before it was 84 pages in length and the one after was 100 pages. So there seems to have been room to spread out. I imagine several of the "stories" were one-page gags, so that's likely how they covered the claim.
