RARE; Dan Hastings beginsPublished in 1937, Star Comics was one of the early anthologies put out by Centaur. The W.C. Brigham cover on issue #1 shows a jester sitting on top of the world, blowing colored bubbles to a menagerie of tots dancing about while holding hands. This euphoric image was typical of the very earliest of comic books, appealing to children with their straightforward graphics and simplistic themes. Acting as a repository for a variety of short stories and repurposed comic strips these books set the stage for what was to come soon after, an explosion of pop culture iconography that thrives into the modern day.
