Indicia (transcription courtesy of Frank Motler):
Motion Picture FUNNIES WEEKLY—No. 1 Published weekly by First Funnies Inc. 45 West 45th Street, NEW YORK N. Y. Title and entire contents copyright 1939 by First Funnies Inc. Distributed exclusively by First Funnies Inc. 45 West 45th Street, New York N. Y.
Inside front and inside back covers are completely blank. Indicia is printed at the bottom of the first interior page.
Some sources credit Martin Filchock with this cover, but the mustachioed cowboy on the "now playing" posters and (to a lesser degree) the surprise lines coming from the fellow on top of the ladder's head are dead giveaways for Schwab, who per Who's Who also wrote his own gag cartoons such as this one (art spotting by Henry Andrews). Overstreet apparently also credits Schwab.
Signed in the final panel. The indicia for this issue is at the bottom of the first page of this story, which is the first interior page of the issue. The box at the end of the last page (blanked out in the Marvel Comics version) reads "CONTINUED NEXT WEEK"
Filchock wrote most of his own scripts, and early on most Funnies, Inc. staffers did their own lettering.
Also signed "G. Peter" in the last panel.
Signed with the artist's full name (although I cannot make out his middle name) on the final panel.
The seventh page was not reprinted directly, although the first six panels of the story in Marvel Mystery Comics #3 relate roughly the same events.
Ad touting the effectiveness of Motion Picture Funnies Weekly for drawing kids to theaters. Interested parties are directed to write "FUNNIES, Inc." (not First Funnies) at the 45 W. 45th St. address and "Ask for Mr. Mahon" (John F. Mahon, former Nicholson business manager and former partner, with fellow Nicholson alum William H. Cook, in the Comics Magazine Corporation, a predecessor of Centaur).
