    Daring Mystery Comics was originally continued as Comedy Comics with no time gap. Later, the "Daring" name was re-launched as Daring Comics picking up the numbering again.
Publishing hiatus between #6 and #7 from October 1940 to March 1941 with nearly as long of a gap between #7 and #8.

Numbering also continued two years later as Daring Comics.
