DESCRIPTION
minor reinforcement of spine; slight color restoration at top and bottom of spine
Max Gaines' one-shot comic book, precedes Famous Funnies as first regular monthly comic book; 1933 Eastern Color giveaway; wraparound cover


It all begins here. Considered by most comics historians to be the first true American comic book, this 1933 one-shot established the size, length, and format of the comic book for decades to come. Max Gaines' repackaging of daily comic strips may not have seemed important at the time, but Famous Funnies essentially provided the foundation for an art form that would come to dominate the latter half of the 20th century, while inspiring the imaginations of generations of readers and artists.

This incredibly rare comic (originally a Wheatena promotional, and later distributed through Woolworth's stores) originally enjoyed an aggressively high print run. The book survives in extremely low numbers today — making it not only one of the most important comics ever published, but also one of the most coveted!!

This pop-culture artifact is marking over 90 years of enduring greatness, sporting interior pages with full colors ranging from beautifully bright to gloriously glossy!
