UNCLE JOE'S FUNNIES (1938) #1
Publisher:
Centaur
Grade:
CGC VF: 8.0
Uncle Joe's Funnies was basically a comic book intended to serve as entertainment for kids, packed with all sorts of fun things to do, such as puzzles, games, magic tricks, and the occasional comedy strip, the activity comic was a genre that would continue to appear over the decades in teen-based titles like Archie or Richie Rich, and even Marvel got in on the party with Fun and Games in the late 70s. Possibly the first ever example of the activity comic, Uncle Joe's Funnies is an interesting time capsule of a bygone era.

Featuring a playfully rendered cover design by Bill Everett, this 8.0 copy of Uncle Joe's Funnies is the second-highest graded on the census. Like many of the Centaurs in this auction this book is extremely rare, fans of the "anything goes" grab-bag approach of early comics will likely be pleased to bid on this interesting relic.
