Issue Notes

Title on the cover is "Captain Fearless Comics." There is no publisher's indicia anywhere.

This is a reprint of about half of Captain Fearless Comics (1941 series) #2 (September 1941). The other half is reprinted in One-Shot #5.

The inside front cover, inside back cover and back cover material are not reprinted from the original (which had publisher promo material in these spots).

Indexer Notes

The first page of the story is used as the cover. The first page is then reprinted inside the comic as well. The only difference is that on the cover there is a "scroll" which reads "Comics" (to make the title "Captain Fearless Comics"), whereas on the actual splash page this scroll contains a description of the Captain Fearless character; also, on the cover "No. 6" has been added under the Captain Fearless logo.

Indexer Notes

Inside front cover, black and white. The text deals with the effects of "missing in action" status (for servicemen) on their families (especially children).

"Reprinted by courtesy of Chesapeake and Ohio Railway" appears at bottom of page.
