Numbering continues from The Adventures of Big Boy (Marvel, 1956 series).
Numbering continued in Adventures of the Big Boy (Webs Adventure Corporation, 1957 series).
Marvel, under the Timely Illustrated Features imprint, packaged material for the Webs Adventure Corporation. All issues had two versions with different looking Big Boy characters. The West Coast version of Big Boy is the version that was previously created for the original franchise--black or brown hair, red and white checkered overalls, and no hat. The East Coast version had Red hair, red and white striped overalls, and a cook's hat.

Lendy's co-branding version seems to be blank where resturaunt info was printed and hand-stamped with Lakeside Yoda's (Lendy's) stamp. Implies possible blank back cover variations where co-branding does not exist for some locations or use of "Your Favorite Family Restaurants" instead?
From issue #13 onward, Webs packaged and published the series themselves.
